  • Variegate Porphyria

    High fecal levels of protoporphyrin and coproporphyrin, increased urine uroporphyrins and iron overload are typical markers of the disease.[] , thus increasing iron absorption and iron overload. [ 7 ] Excess iron facilitates formation of toxic oxygen species, thus amplifying porphyrinogenesis by catalyzing formation[] Reduced heme synthesis stimulates erythropoiesis, which is ineffective, increasing erythron iron turnover and causing nonferritin iron accumulation in the mitochondria that[]

  • Chloramphenicol
