    Acute hepatic porphyria (AHP) is a rare genetic condition characterized by severe, diffuse abdominal pain and a broad range of seemingly unrelated symptoms. AHP presents differently in each patient, with symptoms that mirror those of more common conditions, making it difficult to diagnose. Although AHP can be misleading, it can be easy to detect once you know what to look for.
