Collect a random urine sample first (50 ml with no preservatives), before attempting to collect a 24-h sample. 2. Request "Porphyrin Precursors" (ALA & PBG) instead of "Porphyrins" screen and quantitation. The Laboratory will have to adjust pH to 4-6 for "Porphyrin Precursors", but pH 8-10 for "Porphyrins". - The commonest problem causing confusion! 3. All sample containers should be covered with tin foil to shield off from light.

  • 25. CASE A boy, average hematologic parameters over the subsequent 3 years were as follows: Defect in: Porphyrin synthesis Heme synthesis Globin synthesis microcytic Iron studies were unremarkable → Hemoglobin (Hb) level, 70.0 g/L; Mean corpuscular volume (MCV), 67 fL → Mean corpuscular hemoglobin level, consistently < 20 pg; Reticulocyte counts ranged from 3.6% to 6.7%;
  • 26. A physical examination revealed scars on the face, hands, and forearms. → photosensitive bullous dermatosis A 50-mL urine sample contained 2003 ug uroporphyrin (normal, trace); 92% of this was uro-I. → CEP The diapers exhibited brilliant pink fluorescence when illuminated with long-range ultraviolet light. → Photosensitive porphyrin rings Fluorescent red cells were detected using a microscope fitted with a 405 nm light source. → CEP or EP Erythrocyte UROS activity was 21% of the normal mean. Collectively, these findings confirmed the diagnosis of CEP.
  • 27. Erythrocyte UROS activity was normal in both parents, an unexpected finding as obligate carriers (heterozygotes) for UROS mutations generally have half- normal enzymatic activity. UROS was sequenced, and no mutations or deletions were found in the child or the parents. A GATA1 point mutation was found in the child at codon 216, changing arginine to tryptophan (R216W), as well as on 1 of the 2 GATA1 alleles of his mother and maternal grandmother. GATA1 gene, at Xp11.23, encodes a transcription factor, GATA binding factor 1 (GATA-1), that is critical for normal erythropoiesis, globin gene expression, and megakaryocyte development. GATA-1 also regulates expression of UROS in developing erythrocytes.
