A Basic Definition of Pyrolle

    Pyrrole Disorder is known by many different names including Pyroluria, Kryptopyrrole, Kryptopyrroluria, Pyrroluria, Mauve Factor and Hemepyrrole. It is a biochemical imbalance involving an abnormality in hemoglobin synthesis.

    During the synthesis of hemoglobin in the body, waste products called kryptopyrroles are generated. Kryptopyrroles are normally excreted uneventfully.
