Wilson disease is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder in which copper accumulates in tissues; this manifests as neurological or psychiatric symptoms and liver disease. It is the result of inadequate copper excretion into bile and blood, resulting in decreased serum ceruloplasmin and increased copper in the urine.

This video covers key aspects of Wilson disease, including the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and pathology.
