What organs are affected by porphyria?

Porphyria occurs when the body cannot convert compounds called 'porphyrins' into heme. While all tissues have heme, those that use it the most are the red blood cells, liver and bone marrow. Porphyria can affect the skin, nervous system and gastrointestinal system. More women than men are affected by porphyria.
