since that diesease is inhereted, your kinfolks have it....... The porphyrias are inherited or acquired disorders of certain enzymes in the heme biosynthetic pathway (also called porphyrin pathway). They are broadly classified as hepatic porphyrias or erythropoietic porphyrias, based on the site of the overproduction and mainly accumulation of the porphyrins (or their chemical precursors). The specific symptoms of each porphyria vary based on which enzyme is affected and whether that enzyme occurs in the liver or in the bone marrow
CEP is also called Gunther's disease, erythropoietic porphyria, congenital porphyria, congenital hematoporphyria, and erythropoietic uroporphyria.
cause no ones knows about it
from a rare disease called porphyria
from a rare disease called porphyria
when you blister in the sunlight it is called cutaneous porphyria. its supposed to be a very rare disease so not many people get this disease
Porphyria is not an autoimmune disease. Although, signs and symptoms of the disease mimic lupus, which is an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are based on the immune system not being able to distinguish between its own cells and cells that are foreign in nature. On the other hand, porphyria is based on a malformation of heme precursors, called porphyrins. The name porphyria comes from Greek porphyra, which means purple pigment, and references the purple color of the urine seen in some porphyria cases.
i believe they have a skin disease called Porphyria Cutanea Tarda
Unfortunetly no...but there is a disease called Porphyria, for more information on the disease go to.....http://www.geocities.com/researchguide/drkporphyria.html,
Swedish porphyria, pyrroloporphyria, and intermittent acute porphyria.
Yes there is, but due to difficulty of diagnosing the disease and rarity of the disease some cases may be misdiagnosed already, And i dont know doctors here in Philippines have specialized in porphyria even hepatologist here had difficult time diagnosing porphyria, even medication for porphyria are not available in the philippine, Sad to say
Paraerythropoietic porphyria does not exist in standard medical textbooks on porphyria. "Para" means beside. Apparently, this name should indicate that is something like erythopoietic porphyria. Erythropoietic porphyria is in most cases a very severe disease starting in neonates, in most instances. A disease named erythropoietic protoporphyria is less severe, but begins also in childhood. The main symptom of both diseases is intolerance of sunlight that induces pain and/or blisters in sun-exposed skin.
If by this question you're making reference to the Robert Browning poem "Porphyria's Lover" the poem's speaker strangled Porphyria with her hair. If you are actually asking about a speech someone has perhaps made on the disease called porphyria, I have no idea as to how one might cure oneself of it and thus tender instead my sincere apologies.
it may be Porphyria. also known as the Vampire Disease. I have it. Its symptoms are quite similar to what vampires are known for having. people with porphyria do not crave blood. but its where the Idea of the Vampire came from.http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/p/porphyria/symptoms.htm
Also known as porphyria variegata, protocoproporphyria, South African genetic porphyria, and Royal malady (supposedly King George III of England and Mary, Queen of Scots, suffered from VP).
Porphyria (Poor-fear-E-ah) Porphyria is not a single disease but a group of at least eight disorders that differ considerably from each other. A common feature in all porphyrias is the accumulation in the body of "porphyrins" or "porphyrin precursors." Although these are normal body chemicals, they normally do not accumulate. Precisely which of these chemicals builds up depends upon the type of porphyria.
both depending on the type of porphyria
it can be, if the porphyria is ACQUIRED, rather than inherited.
The cast of Porphyria - 2013 includes: Jasmin Egner as Porphyria Simon McCay as Thomas
Yes, congenital erythropoeitic porphyria (CEP).
It is a rare disease, estimated to affect fewer than one in one million people.
Yes, in acute intermittent porphyria, both pyrroles and porphyrins are excreted in the urine to an excessive degree.
Urine test, blood plasma tests, biochemical tests to determine type of porphyria, enzyme test.
