porphyrias


Explanation:
According to Webster's: "A defect of blood pigment metabolism in which porphyrins are produced in excess, are present in the blood, and are found in the urine."
Dorland's Medical Dictionary provides several explanations, the main generic one being: "Any of a group of disturbances of porphyrin metabolism, characterized by marked increase in formation and excretion of porphyrins or their precursors."
There are numerous types of porphyria conditions: acute porphyria, acute intermittent porphyria, congenital erythropoietic porphyria, congenital photosensitive porphyria, etc.
HTH!
