They love porphyrias. Maybe they watched the movie "The Madness of King George" over and over, I dunno, but in order to pass the test, you have to understand that if you get a patient with bizarre symptoms like stomach pains with very mild photosensitivity, delirum, and his urine darkens in the light, you are looking at ACUTE INTERMITTENT PORPHRIA! So you have to know four things: What is the deficient enzyme? AND, What substances accumulate in the urine? AND what two amino acid begin this synthesis of porphrin molecule? AND what metallic ion cofactor is required. YOU HAVE TO KNOW THIS TO PASS.
