Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In pseudoporphyria, skin lesions of porphyria cutanea tarda occur without any biochemical evidence of abnormal porphyrins. It may be seen in patients with chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis or may be due to various drugs, such as tetracycline hydochloride, frusemide, nalidixic acid and naproxen. We describe a case of pseudoporphyria apparently due to amiodarone.
