Wilson's Disease Directory
Wilson's disease is a rare inherited disorder that causes the body to store too much copper. If your body cannot eliminate copper properly, it accumulates and can damge the kidneys, brain, and eyes. Liver disease, central nervous system dysfunction, and even death can occur if not treated. But when diagnosed and treated early, many people with Wilson's disease live normal lives.
