Porphyria or Port Wine skin conditions? The Port Wine condition is similar to the other conditions mentioned, but we have to consider, again, which came first? Was it the wine, produced since Roman times in a part of a nation that we today know of as "Portugal", and again we are left to consider "which came first?" Did Portugal become known because of its wine? Or was the wine named after the nation? Or is there any connection at all?
I will leave it up to you to persue this condition and its possible relation to Por(t)-phyria, if there is one?
