Wilson’s disease 

Home » Conditions » Wilson’s disease 
Wilson’s disease is an inherited disorder in which too much copper builds up in the body, resulting in deposition in various parts of the body, particularly the liver, eyes and brain. This can lead to liver damage resulting in cirrhosis and its complications, as well as psychiatric and neurologic manifestations. Making an early diagnosis is important in order to prevent progression of the disease and its complications.
