The incidence of inherited porphyrias in Europe. Mortality directly related to acute attacks is now very rare in most countries as a result of improved treatment use of human hemin and identification and inetrmittant of presymptomatic relatives.

Affected individuals may recover from acute AIP attacks within days, but recovery from severe attacks that are not promptly recognized and treated may take weeks or months.

Of all types of porphyria, acute intermittent porphyria is the most common type. The exact mechanism of lntermittant attacks not clear. This includes monitoring for paraneoplastic prodromes of hepatocellular cancer.

Acute intermittent porphyria

Morphine oral, sublingual, intravenous or subcutaneous Pethidine Diamorphine. Each mg dose of heme contains A family history intetmittant with autosomal dominant inheritance of an acute porphyria; however, is often absent given the low penetrance of clinical manifestations of AIP see Penetrance. Plasma porphyrin concentration is usually increased during an acute attack. Penetrance The penetrance for clinical manifestations of an HMBS pathogenic variant is not accurately known. Heme arginate Normosang Orphan Europe, Paris is an arginine-stabilized form of human hemin available in most other countries, including Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Zkut America.

The urine may be reddish-brown or red; however, this is not a constant finding especially if the sample is fresh. She assists the patient community…. Prevention of Secondary Complications End-stage renal disease, which is thought to result from chronic systemic arterial hypertension, may be delayed through effective blood pressure control [ Andersson et al b ].


The porphyrias and other disorders of porphyrin metabolism. Total urinary porphyrin, but not PBG, concentration may be increased in various disorders, including alcohol abuse and liver disease [ Badminton et al ]. Global Genes is a non-profit c 3 corporation advocating for rare disease globally.

Long acting analogues can be used to prevent ovulation and should be administered during the first few days of the menstrual cycle to minimize the early stimulation effect on hormone release which can trigger an attack.

Because a most individuals with HMBS deficiency remain asymptomatic throughout life, b neither molecular genetic testing nor biochemical testing results can predict a clinical attack of AIP, and c treatment and prognosis of adults with AIP has improved considerably, requests for prenatal testing are not common.

Molecular genetic testing is not required to confirm the diagnosis in a symptomatic individual but may help to confirm or refute a previous diagnosis of overt AIP in an individual who is in full clinical and biochemical remission [ Whatley et al ]. Dubin—Johnson syndrome Rotor syndrome.

Once diluted, the heme becomes unstable and may aggregate if there is undue delay. Population surveys suggest a intetmittant figure. One mutations, evidently originating in northern Sweden, is predominant. A retrospective analysis of outcome of pregnancy in patients with acute porphyria. Clear Turn Off Turn On. Genes and Databases for chromosome locus and protein.

Porphyria, Acute Intermittent

Acute intermittent porphyria AIP is a rare metabolic disorder that is the most common of the acute porphyries and is characterized by enzymatic defect of porphobilinogen deaminase with depot and increased excretion of inermittant and their precursors 1. Special measures include gonadorelin analogues for repeated premenstrual attacks and long-term treatment with human hemin.

Acute intermittent porphyria with central pontine myelinolysis and cortical laminar necrosis. Acute neurovisceral attacks are the main presenting clinical manifestation;skin lesions do not occur.

A Purple Canary: Life with Acute Intermittent Porphyria

MRI reveals reversible lesions resembling posterior reversible encephalopathy in porphyria. Most patients have underlying liver cell damage with iron overload and there are strong associations with alcohol, hepatitis C and mutations in the haemochromatosis HFE gene. Journal of Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Biochemistry.

After infusion, the vein should be washed with saline for min. A point mutation GA in exon 12 of the porphobilinogen deaminase gene results in exon skipping and is responsible for acute intermittent porphyria. The most frequent presenting symptoms are abdominal pain and tachycardia.

While most centers would consider decisions regarding prenatal testing to be the choice of the parents, discussion of these issues is appropriate. Barbiturates and Primidone must be avoided as they commonly precipitate symptoms. Protoporphyrin is the main stool porphyrin, but a small increase in coproporphyrin III is also observed. Clinically indistinguishable acute attacks occur in other acute porphyrias. Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine.

Innala E, Andersson C. HMBS porphobilinogen deaminase is the third enzyme in the heme biosynthetic pathway. If drugs have caused the attack, discontinuing the offending substances is essential. Convulsions can be terminated with intravenous diazepam, clonazepam, or magnesium sulphate. Peripheral cannulas used to administer hematin should be replaced after each use.
