Wilson’s disease: A case report with review of literature
Wilson’s disease is a rare inborn error of metabolism characterized by abnormal deposition of copper in various tissues caused by the inability to excrete copper into the bile. Wilson’s disease is also known as hepatolenticular degeneration because liver and lentiform nuclei in the brain are the most commonly involved areas. Cerebral involvement in Wilson’s disease results in typical characteristic radiological signs on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Here, we report the case of a 27-year-old female who presented with neurologic manifestations and diagnosed as Wilson’s disease with typical MRI findings.
