Acute intermittent porphyria

Diagnosis and Testing

Is there newborn testing for acute intermittent porphyria?

There is no testing on the newborn screen for acute intermittent porphyria. This is because attacks do not generally occur puberty. Therefore, newborns are not in immediate danger if they have undetected acute intermittent porphyria.
