  • Porphyria

    Refsum disease is rare, but heterozygote carriers may be at risk if they have diets highly selective for beef and dairy products. The incidence of acute intermittent porphyria is 5-10 per 100,000 (underestimated because of positive cases not being induced and long periods of latency). AIP is widely believed to be[…][emedicine.medscape.com]
