Delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase-porphyria (ADP) is an autosomal recessive disorder of heme biosynthesis, caused by delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase deficiency (ALAD).(1) We report an important change in pathophysiological concepts and subsequent therapeutic options for patients with ADP, based on a review of previous cases and the treatment effects in a reported case.
