A new form of acute hepatic porphyria with double genetic defect--deficiency of porphobilinogen deaminase and coproporphyrinogen oxidase--is described. Among 17 studied family members this double enzymatic deficiency was found in five individuals, deficiency of porphobilinogen deaminase in four, and deficiency of coproporphyrinogen oxidase in two. Only the proband had an attack of porphyria. Apart from the proband, all family members had normal urinary PBG excretion. Increased faecal… Expand
Co‐existence of hereditary coproporphyria and porphyria cutanea tarda: The importance of genetic testing
The porphyrias are a group of inherited disorders that result in defects in the enzymes of the haem biosynthetic pathway, causing photosensitive bullous skin eruptions or abdominal and neurologicalExpand
Dual porphyrias revisited
TLDR
Molecular genetic analysis should complement the analytical techniques used to characterize patients and families in which a double enzymatic deficiency within the haeme biosynthetic pathway is assumed. Expand

TLDR
Porphyria may be overrepresented in psychiatric populations, but the lack of control groups makes this uncertain, and the management of patients with porphyria and psychiatric symptoms causes considerable problems. Expand
Demystification of Chester porphyria: a nonsense mutation in the Porphobilinogen Deaminase gene.
TLDR
The findings largely exclude the possibility that a hitherto unknown gene is involved in the pathogenesis of the porphyrias, and indicate that Chester porphyria is neither a dual Porphyria, nor a separate type of porphyrio, but rather a variant of acute intermittent porphyira. Expand
Porphyria with double errots in the heme biosynthetic pathway
TLDR
The modification in the regimen caused a decline in the frequency of her seizures and marked improvement in her mental state and intravenous heme treatment and newer types of anticonvulsants including gabapentin and vigabatrin were considered. Expand
The acute porphyrias
TLDR
The various types of acute porphyria are discussed, as well as their mode of inheritance and the enzyme deficiencies responsible for the symptoms, and the main complications are hypertension and renal failure. Expand

CHESTER PORPHYRIA: BIOCHEMICAL STUDIES OF A NEW FORM OF ACUTE PORPHYRIA
TLDR
A previously unrecognised form of acute porphyria has been identified in a large family in Chester, UK, with a dual enzyme deficiency, with reduced activity of both porphobilinogen deaminase and protoporphyrinogen oxidase. Expand
New form of dual porphyria:coexistent acute intermittent porphyria and porphyria cutanea tarda*
Abstract. A previously unrecognized form of dual porphyria has been identified in four patients. One male and one female with acute symptoms were diagnosed as having acute intermittent porphyriaExpand
Porphyria variegata and porphyria cutanea tarda in siblings: chemical and genetic aspects.
TLDR
Porphyria variegata and porphyria cutanea tarda in siblings is thus far unique and certain hypotheses are considered in respect to genetic aspects of the differing prophyrias in this sibling pair. Expand
Chester porphyria: a clinical study of a new form of acute porphyria.
TLDR
The porphyric members of the kindred show a previously undescribed hereditary disorder in which the characteristic enzymatic defects of acute intermittent Porphyria and variegate porphyria coexist in the same subject. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that the dual porphyria reflects a double heterozygous condition of coexistent AIP and PCT genes in the same individual. Expand
A red cell enzyme method for the diagnosis of acute intermittent porphyria.
TLDR
The mean value of the enzyme in red cells of patients with acute intermittent porphyria was approximately 50% that of normals, indicating that the mutation causes complete lack of catalytic activity in the mutant enzyme. Expand

TLDR
A sensitive calorimetric method for the quantitative determination of SAL is described and 6AL has been found in urine of a patient with acute porphyria and also in normal urine. Expand

TLDR
An HPLC method is described for the assay of coproporphyrinogen III oxidase in human leucocytes and in two patients with hereditary coproporphyria, the activities were 0.029 and 0.078 nmol/h per mg protein. Expand
