Porphyria is a group of mostly genetic diseases in which substances called porphyrins build up in the body, negatively affecting the skin or nervous system.

The types that affect the nervous system are also known as acute porphyria, as symptoms are rapid in onset and short in duration. Symptoms of an attack include abdominal pain, chest pain, vomiting, confusion, constipation, fever, high.

Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) may result from genetic or environmental factors such as exposure to certain chemicals or significant liver damage. This type of PCT is termed "acquired" or "sporadic." In patients with acquired PCT, the disorder usually develops after age 30 and onset in childhood is rare.

This book discusses as well the biochemistry, pathophysiology, and clinical features of variegate porphyria in the light of several essential advances in the understanding, management, and diagnosis of variegate porphyria.

Erythropoietic protoporphyria is a form of porphyria, which varies in severity and can be very arises from a deficiency in the enzyme ferrochelatase, leading to abnormally high levels of protoporphyrin in the red blood cells (erythrocytes), plasma, skin, and liver.

The severity varies significantly from individual to individual. A clinically similar form of porphyria, known as X. Porphyria remains incurable, and treatment is mainly supportive: pain control, fluids and avoidance of drugs and chemicals that provoke acute attacks.

Hereditary porphyrias are a group of eight metabolic disorders of the haem biosynthesis pathway that are characterised by acute neurovisceral symptoms, skin lesions, or both.

Every porphyria is caused by abnormal function of a separate enzymatic step, resulting in a specific accumulation of haem precursors. Seven porphyrias are the result of a partial enzyme deficiency, and a gain of function. Porphyria is a group of diseases whose clinical picture is often complex and heterogeneous, but neurological complications are not uncommon.

When indicated, differential diagnosis of neurological signs and symptoms should include porphyria, as the incidence of the disease is probably underestimated. porphyria - he is known to have suffered from some of the symptoms seen in porphyria, and his direct descendants suffer from this genetic disorder.

Thus, a strong argument can be made. Actually, a stronger argument can be made for James VI/I, as one of the most diagnostic symptoms of the disease is the red urine, something which was noted for.

Porphyria cutanea tarda is the most common type of porphyria worldwide. It affects about 1 in 25, people in the UK. About 1 in 75, people have acute porphyria attacks.
