Congenital erythropoietic porphyria (CEP) is a rare pathological condition in man and some domestic animals.
Patients with VP have a sharply defined fluorescence emission maximum at an excitation wavelength of 626 [+ or -] 1 nm (15); the presence of this characteristic peak efficiently separates patients with VP from those with AIP, erythropoietic protoporphyria, congenital erythropoietic porphyria, PCT, and hereditary coproporphyria (15, 16).
However, a fluorescence emission maximum between 618 and 622 may be present in samples from healthy subjects and those with AIP, HCP, congenital erythropoietic porphyria, PCT, renal failure, and cholestasis (12,13) and therefore cannot differentiate these conditions.
