Chang Heon Yang, Moon Kwan Chung, Hyun Woo Lee
Abstract
We report a case of acute intermittent porphyria presenting with variable symptoms and signs such as hypertension, polyneuropathy, syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone and cerebral infarction. A 47 year-old female patient entered hospital with abdominal pain followed by generalized seizure. She was diagnosed to have acute intermittent porphyria in consequence of Watson-Schwartz test and δ-ALA in 24 hours urine. She was managed with conservative treatment but died of respiratory failure.
