  • Expertise and team approach. At Mayo Clinic, a team of specialists from hematology, dermatology, gastroenterology and sometimes neurology and other areas work together to consider your symptoms, determine what tests you need, and provide diagnosis and personalized treatment.
  • Latest diagnostic and treatment options. Porphyrias are so rare that many doctors have never seen cases before, making diagnosis difficult. Misdiagnosis can occur because symptoms may be vague and test results can be hard to interpret. At Mayo Clinic, experts specialize in accurate testing, diagnosis and treatment of porphyrias, using the latest tools and technology.
