The subject of porphyria is discussed in its general aspects and acute porphyria in more detail. A case of acute porphyria is reported which seems to fall under the rarer category of type III in the classification. Reference is made to the not infrequent decision to regard the abdominal signs as indication for laparotomy. Waldenstrom mentions 29 cases in which laparotomy was performed.
