Check the option D. in the question ?

Well, in my knowledge, the answer must be a Decrease in RBC Uroporphyrinogen Decaroboxylase, thereby leading to Porphyria Cutanea Tarda - But the option tht u gave as D. is a decrease in RBC uroBILONOGEN decarboxylase .. so i'm kind of confused .. did u type it correct or am i incorrect .. ???
