Summary

We present data on one patient with an inheritance pattern for two porphyrias. From her mother she inherited the trait of hereditary coproporphyria; from both parents she inherited the trait of congenital erythropoietic porphyria (Günther disease). Enzyme studies confirmed this new type of dual porphyria.
