Recent mapping of acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) in Sweden has Drugs contraindicated in acute porphyria (Läkemedel farliga vid akut porfyri), jointly. Pathogenesis and treatment of acute intermittent porphyria. R D Forrest [ PubMed]; Lithner F. Intravenös hematinbehandling av akut intermittent porfyri. All porphyrias result from partial deficiency of one of the enzymes of heme biosynthesis and, apart from the sporadic form of porphyria cutanea tarda, are.

The diagnosis of the acute attack should be made by measuring quantitative PBG intermithant starting specific treatment for porphyria eg with human hemin more about diagnosis.

All the autosomal dominant porphyrias show low clinical penetrance. Gastrointestinal features including nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea, abdominal distention, and ileus are also common.

She assists the patient community…. Evaluation of relatives at risk: The gene consists of 15 exons distributed over 10 kb that encode a ubiquitous HMBS isoform exons 1 and that is expressed in all tissues [ Puy et al ] and an erythroid isoform exons that is restricted to erythroid cells [ Grandchamp et porfigia ].

AIP is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. GeneReviews is a registered trademark of the University of Washington, Seattle.

Data are compiled from the following standard references: Brain magnetic resonance imaging white-matter lesions and cerebrospinal fluid findings in patients with acute intermittent porphyria. These symptoms resolve after the attack, though anxiety may persist. Please review our privacy policy.

Pathogenesis and treatment of acute intermittent porphyria.

Intravenous administration of hemin preparations may be life-saving when employed early when neuronal damage is still reversible, and may help to avoid paresis or prevent its progression. Combined liver and kidney transplantation in acute intermittent porphyria. September 27, ; Last Update: Related Genetic Counseling Issues See Management, Evaluation of Relatives at Risk for information on evaluating at-risk relatives for the purpose of early diagnosis and treatment.


Correct any hyponatraemia Intravenous diazepam Clonazepam Magnesium sulphate. Prenatal testing is possible but is rarely requested because of the low clinical penetrance and favorable clinical outcome for the great majority of symptomatic adults.

Molecular, functional and clinical consequences of some new mutations found in the porphobilinogen deaminase gene. Montgomery; Bloomer, Joseph R.

The main exception is Sweden where the prevalence of AIP is high 1 per people in northern Sweden due to a founder effect. Opiates are the most effective analgesics for use in an acute attack.

Acute intermittent porphyria AIPalso called Swedish porphyriapyrroloporphyriaintermittent acute porphyria is a rare autosomal dominant metabolic disorder affecting the production of heme resulting from a deficiency of the porphobilinogen deaminase. A point mutation GA in exon 12 of the porphobilinogen deaminase gene akjt in exon skipping and is responsible for acute intermittent porphyria. In some patients, residual neuropathic pain continues once the acute attack has settled.

Evaluation of Relatives at Risk If the HMBS pathogenic variant is known in a family, at-risk relatives can benefit from molecular genetic testing to clarify their genetic status, so that those at increased risk of developing acute attacks of AIP can be identified early and counseled about preventive porfiiria.

Peripheral cannulas used to administer hematin should be replaced after each use. Patients treated regularly with heme arginate require monitoring of iron status to detect iron overload.

Bilateral axonal motor neuropathy may also involve the distal radial nerves [ King et al ].

To confirm the diagnosis in a proband. Plasma porphyrin fluorescence emission scanning excludes variegate porphyria if the peak is at less than nm see Differential Diagnosis.

In one-third of patients suffering from acute intermittent porphyria there is an associated increase in total cholesterol and LDLC aakut. Recommended drugs and procedures are listed below. Seminars in Liver Disease ; 18, Number 1 whole issue.


Recommendations for the evaluation of parents of a proband with an apparent de novo pathogenic variant include urinary PBG determination or, if the proband’s HMBS pathogenic variant has been identified, molecular genetic testing of HMBS. The most common identified triggers for acute attacks are medications, weight loss dietsand surgery.

Diagnostic strategies for autosomal dominant acute porphyrias: In a mild attack, it may be acceptable to allow 24 hours porgiria spontaneous settling of the attack.

Porphyria, Acute Intermittent

Convulsions can be terminated intremittant intravenous diazepam, clonazepam, or magnesium sulphate. Innala E, Andersson C. Prevention of secondary complications: When a woman with AIP experiences abdominal pain, hypertension, and tachycardia during pregnancy, complications of pregnancy should be excluded before the findings are attributed to intermittanr acute attack.

One was homozygous for a pathogenic variant in exon 6 and was less severely affected than the four described above [ Hessels et al ]. Offspring of a proband. Medical therapy aims to reduce the frequency and or severity of acute attacks by the following measures: The American Journal of Medicine. The diagnosis of AIP in a symptomatic individual is based on increased PBG in a random urine sample protected from light prior to analysistogether with evidence of a normal total fecal porphyrin pofiria normal coproporphyrin isomer ratio, and plasma porphyrin fluorescence emission porfira that is either normal or shows a peak emission around nm.

Two major hypotheses for the pathogenesis of the neurologic lesions that give rise to the clinical features of acute porphyria have been proposed: She first presented with AIP at 11 and is now They usually present in early childhood and most are clinically more severe than their heterozygous counterparts.
