Porphyria is a group of at least seven metabolic disorders characterized by excess accumulation of the natural chemicals "porphyrins" or "porphyrin precursors" in the body. The different types vary in their clinical presentation. Clinical findings associated with the disorders generally include skin or nervous system manifestations. The BPA was established in 1999.
