Porphyria is a general term for several genetic conditions that result from a lack of specific chemicals involved in the production of a chemical called heme. Heme is a chemical found in bone marrow and blood, and carries oxygen. It is also found in the liver. Porphyria disorders are genetic, and so they can move from one country to another through natural human migration. There is no vector or infectious component.

The main symptom of both diseases is intolerance of sunlight that induces pain and/or blisters in sun-exposed skin.
