Hepatoerythropoietic Porphyria (HEP)

Hepatoerythropoietic porphyria is one of the most seldom type
of genetic porphyrias. It occurs due to a reduced function of the enzyme
uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase. The porphyrins accumulate in both bone marrow, blood, urine and in the skin.

The symptoms start during the childhood and are seen as blisters on the skin. Later on there will be skin reactions with slightly of hair, wounds and scars. There will be reactions from the liver.
