Acute intermittent porphyria AIP is a rare autosomal dominant metabolic disorder affecting the production of heme resulting from a deficiency of the porphobilinogen deaminase. It is the most common of the acute porphyrias. The clinical presentation of AIP is highly variable and non-specific. The patients are typically asymptomatic, with most gene carriers having no family history because the condition had remained latent for several generations.

Crigler—Najjar syndrome is a rare inherited disorder affecting the metabolism of bilirubin , a chemical formed from the breakdown of the heme in red blood cells. The disorder results in a form of non hemolytic jaundice , which results in high levels of unconjugated bilirubin and often leads to brain damage in infants. The disorder is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. This syndrome is divided into types I and II, with the latter sometimes called Arias syndrome. These two types, along with Gilbert's syndrome , Dubin—Johnson syndrome , and Rotor syndrome , make up the five known hereditary defects in bilirubin metabolism.
