The present work has been undertaken in order to describe the case of an acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) patient with coexisting rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Due to the high activity of her RA the problem of proper treatment was considered. Based on the available literature it was decided to introduce methotrexate at a dose of 15 mg/week. Three months later the patient improved. She reached an ACR 50 score. Moreover, no symptoms of her AIP have been observed.
