    Erythropoietic uroporphyria of Gunther was seen in a 58-year-old man who presented with photosensitivity, haemolytic anaemia, and classical laboratory findings. Family studies showed five asymptomatic relatives with erythrocyte uroporphyrin concentrations in the probable latent heterozygote range.
