  • Sunburn

    Abstract Exposure to ultraviolet radiation is the main risk factor for skin cancer. Denmark has one of the highest incidences of skin cancer in the world. In 2007, a long-term sun safety campaign was launched in Denmark. We have evaluated the effects on prevalence of sunburn and modeled the effects on future[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anxiety Disorder

    This review focuses on three HMD categories: acute, treatable HMDs (urea cycle abnormalities, remethylation disorders, acute intermittent porphyria); chronic, treatable HMDs[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] View Article Google Scholar Kumar B: Acute intermittent porphyria presenting solely with psychosis: a case report and discussion.[dx.doi.org] Varied psychiatric manifestations of acute intermittent porphyria. Biol.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    We report an eleven year old girl with early motor difficulties initially diagnosed with a peripheral neuropathy in another hospital based on abnormal electrophysiological findings. Our clinical assessment did not highlight obvious clinical features supporting a peripheral neuropathy but evidence of mild proximal weakness.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mental Disorder

    This review focuses on three HMD categories: acute, treatable HMDs (urea cycle abnormalities, remethylation disorders, acute intermittent porphyria); chronic, treatable HMDs[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] View Article Google Scholar Kumar B: Acute intermittent porphyria presenting solely with psychosis: a case report and discussion.[dx.doi.org] Varied psychiatric manifestations of acute intermittent porphyria.

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    Acute and chronic hepatic porphyrias (acute intermittent porphyria, porphyria cutanea tarda, hereditary coproporphyria, variegate porphyria ) and tyrosinemia type I are risk[en.wikipedia.org] The diagnosis of an acute hepatic porphyria (AIP, HCP, VP) should be sought in patients with HCC without typical risk factors of hepatitis B or C, alcoholic liver cirrhosis[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Acute intermittent porphyria is a metabolic disorder rarely seen in prepubertal children.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] "Acute intermittent porphyria: a test of clinical acumen".[en.wikipedia.org] There are seven main types of porphyrias; acute intermittent porphyria and plumboporphyria are predominantly neuropsychiatric; congenital erythropoietic porphyria, porphyria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Testicular torsion .[patient.info] Non-surgical disease - eg, myocardial infarction , pericarditis , pneumonia , sickle cell crisis , hepatitis , inflammatory bowel disease , opiate withdrawal, typhoid , acute[patient.info]

  • Barbiturate

    ALA synthetase is involved in the porphyrin production pathway, and therefore barbiturates are contraindicated in patients with acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) or variegate[openanesthesia.org] Their effect on ALA synthetase leads to the accumulation of ALA, which can lead to exacerbations of acute intermittent porphyria and porphyria variegata.[web.archive.org] intermittent porphyria is a dominantly inherited partial deficiency of porphobilinogen deaminase Adrenoleukodystrophy is an X-linked disorder caused by mutations of a gene[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
