The author sees many patients with chronic oral problems of unknown

etiology. It has been noticed that many of these patients also

have complex medical histories. Fatigue and pain are two of

the most common features observed. Some, but not all, also

have other definitive medical diagnoses. Those patients with

appropriate symptoms have been tested for porphyrins and

porphyrin enzyme activity. Advances in molecular biology have

led to the availability of a number of porphyrin enzymes for

routine testing. The results are interesting and suggest

abnormal porphyrin metabolism may be more prevalent than is

currently thought.
