MedLine Citation:
PMID:  3651985     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This article reports the case of a 41 year old female with a history of acute intermittent porphyria who presented with exacerbation of a chronic psychotic illness. Though the evaluative studies for an acute porphyric episode were negative, psychological testing was consistent with an organic patchy cognitive decline. This finding is discussed in relation to the reported assymetric neuropathic lesions reported in porphyria.
