Porphyrias are a group of rather seldom diseases. "Porphyria" comes from the Greek word Porphyra, meaning purple. The red colour purple is referring to the red colour, the urine may get by some kinds of porphyrias.
This web-site is developed to increase knowledge of porphyrias.
I would like to make it possible to exchange knowledge of symptoms and prevention.
Therefore, if you are suffering from porphyria, or if you have an interest in porphyria in general, you will be more than welcome.
Bright ideas on prevention of the symptoms are mostly wanted.
To get informations about the different porphyrias, you may click on:
Porphyria Cutanea Tarda
Congenital Erythropoietic Porphyria
Acuta Intermittent Porphyria
To avoid any misunderstandings I would be happy, if you would spend a moment to read the disclaimer down left.
Have a good time!
