Porphyria & APF

Is porphyria genetic?
Porphyria is a genetic disorder that is caused by an abnormality in the heme production process, which results in an accumulation of heme precursors.
Is porphyria hereditary?
acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) a hereditary, autosomal dominant, form of hepatic porphyria manifested by recurrent attacks of abdominal pain, gastrointestinal dysfunction, and neurologic disturbances, and by excessive amounts of δ-aminolevulinic acid and porphobilinogen in the urine; it is due to an abnormality of pyrrole metabolism.
