The 15 point of this case goes to Ladan, who answered it correctly and this was her answer:

1) Hemochromatosis

2) Iron deposition in liver cells

3) Iron deposits in Pancreas, hence the cause of DM (Bronze diabetes).

4) Diagnosis is liver biopsy and treatment is phlebotomy. The other thing that should be done is genetic studies for himself (whether he is homozygous or heterozygous carrier) and immediate family.

PS: Iron deposits in the heart causing Diastolic heart failure.

The rest of the answer is coming soon, and also another case is on the way, just be patient and try to answer the next one.
Towards a better healthy Somalia!!
Unless all parts of the society participate equally in the health process, nothing could be expected.
