Abstract

Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is a rare autosomal disease that presents with gastrointestinal, psychiatric, and neurological symptoms. Bizarre behaviors are common to several illnesses present in a psychiatric setting. Most often these are manifestations of psychotic illness such as schizophrenia or manic-depressive illness, but they can also be seen in cases of organic mental dysfunction and toxic psychotic states. The author describes the disorder and reports on two cases of AIP in children who were initially diagnosed as atypical psychosis in an inpatient children's psychiatric hospital over a 3-year period.
