Abstract

Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) is the commonest form of porphyria. It can be inherited or acquired. We present a case of genetic haemochromatosis with associated PCT. Venesection led to improvement in both conditions. We highlight the need for the awareness of PCT and its associated conditions.
