Abstract

In 1912, a Neurology resident described cirrhosis and lenticular degeneration occurring in families and this disease has been since named after him as Wilson’s disease1. J. N. Cumings first elucidated the link between copper and Wilson’s disease in 19482. This is an inherited disorder of copper metabolism manifesting typically as hepatic disease in children and as neurological disease in older children and young adults
