Default porphyria

hi
there are various types of porphyria , but i think the 2 important ones are PCT (porphyria cutanea tarda or cutaneus porphyria) and acute porphyria which are good to know in interneal medicine,
also in neurology it's an important topic cuz one of the ethilogy of abdominal pain crisis is the usage of anticonvalsants, anyway it's really a very complicated and not very important topic, hope somebody can find a breif explanation of its manifestation and managements.

Anything that you don't find in Kaplan Notes then you will not see in the exam. Trust me
