Abstract

Attack of Acute Intermittent Porphyria in a 34-Year-Old Female Patient after a Lithotrypsy

Zuzanna Wardega*, Marta Donderska, Zuzanna Czudy and Barbara Dominik

A 34-old-female patient had acute intermittent porphyria. Rare diseases should be considered in the differential diagnosis, especially in young adults. It is hard to recognize the illness in a district hospital, where access to the specialist laboratory tests is difficult. Although non-specific symptoms and attributing them to prior surgical intervention delayed diagnosis, the maintained diagnostic, careful observation allowed for proper diagnosis of the disease.
