Porphyria is an inherited disease, it can be inherited from just one parent. A condition that affects the skin or nervous system is called Porphyria. When it affects the skin it is called Cutaneous Porphyria and when there are problems with the nervous system, it is called Acute Porphyria.
Both the types of Porphyria have only one cause – production of Haem. Haem is the protein in RBCs which carries the oxygen and food to all the organs. Haem is produced in the liver and bone marrow. When production of haem is impaired due to shortage of certain enzymes then the condition may occurs. The type of porphyria is dependent on the type of enzyme shortage.
People who have acute porphyria will develop symptoms like chest or abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, constipation, confusion, seizures and even increased heartbeat. When skin porphyria occurs then itching, blisters and pain may also develop in the hands, face, neck and ears as these are the areas exposed to sunlight.
Consulting a doctor is essential for people who are suffering from porphyria. Porphyria disease is rare and can mimic other diseases. Despite such careful diagnosis is essential. After correct diagnosis doctors will prescribe medicines. Persons with porphyria can manage the disease through symptomatic cures.
