Fourteen cases of polymorphic light eruptions were investigated for any increase in porphyrin excretion. Ten out of these 14 patients showed increased excretion of porphyrins either in urine or faeces or both. Four out of this showed uroporphyrinuria. Two patients were observed to have uroporphyrinuria and coproporphyrinuria. In one of the patients uroporphyrin was found in detectable quantities in faeces as an isolated finding. In another patient in whom uroporphyrin was found in faeces, uroporphyrinuria and excessivequantities of protoporphyrin in faeces was found. In 2 more patients faecal coproporphyrin and protopoxphyrin were found to be increased.
