Understanding the signs and symptoms can help you determine if AIP is the missing piece in your diagnosis

  • AIP is a rare inherited disease caused by a partial deficiency of the enzyme porphobilinogen (PBG) deaminase in the heme biosynthetic pathway.1
  • Diagnosis of AIP is challenging because signs and symptoms mimic other, more common conditions.1
  • Accuracy and speed are critical in the diagnosis of an acute porphyric attack.1
