Green List (high evidence)

Sufficient evidence of causation in terms of families / variants. More likely to present via metabolic in terms of multi-system abnormality of early onset
Created: 23 Feb 2017, 5:17 p.m.

Mode of inheritance
BIALLELIC, autosomal or pseudoautosomal

Porphyria, congenital erythropoietic 263700


Sarah Leigh (Genomics England Curator)

From: Clinical Genomic Database: Porphyria, congenital erythropoietic INTERVENTION/RATIONALE: Transfusions can be beneficial
Individuals can prevent with bleeding diatheses, and prompt treatment may be beneficial
Limitation to sun exposure may be beneficial due ot photosensitivity
Manifestations such as thrombocytopenia and hemolytic anemia, may be effectively treated by splenectomy
Use of oral sorbents have been described
BMT has been described in severe cases
