hematopoietic system
• microcytic hypochromic red cells and abundant target cells
• increase in early erythroblast expansion in the spleen
• however, reticulocyte counts and red cell half-life are normal and white cell counts are normal
• whole blood heme in red cells is reduced

• 3- to 4-fold increase in porphyrins, particularly coproporphyrinogen III, in the urine and feces in females, but not males
• the ratio of the two coproporphyrinogen isomers (CIII:CI) is elevated in the feces of females
• however, urinary porphobilinogen level is normal
• females treated with phenobarbital to induce porphyric stress exhibit elevated fecal coproporphyrinogen III levels and elevation in the CIII:CI ratio, however, urinary prophyrins are not significantly increased above baseline levels
• females fasted for 15 hours do not exhibit clinical crisis and mice remain well and urinary prophyrins do not increase
