Improving Awareness of Wilson Disease in Your Practice

Tuesday, April 4, 2023

Wilson disease is a rare inherited disorder that causes copper to accumulate in the liver, brain, and other vital organs. Due to its low prevalence and highly variable clinical presentation, with symptoms that overlap more common disorders, patients are frequently misdiagnosed and encounter delays in diagnosis and treatment. Patients with Wilson disease require lifelong treatment. Standard-of-care therapies are associated with numerous adverse events, highlighting the need for safer therapies. Novel therapies currently under investigation have the potential to address several unmet needs in the management of Wilson disease. The second program in this series of 3 webinars will review the clinical manifestations of Wilson disease and strategies for diagnostic workup.
