Juvenile hemochromatosis is, as its name indicates, a form of hemochromatosis which emerges during youth.
There are two forms:
- "HFE2A" is associated with hemojuvelin
- "HFE2B" is associated with hepcidin antimicrobial peptide
Some sources only specifically include hemojuvelin as a cause of juvenile hemochromatosis.
