Wilson's disease – never too late

A 43-year-old man presented with a four-month history of abdominal bloating, loss of appetite and 5 kg weight loss. He was previously fit and well, with no history of alcohol or drug ingestion, and no prior blood transfusion. Clinical examination revealed pigmentation around the cornea of both eyes, consistent with Kayser-Fleischer (KF) rings (Fig. 1A), but there were no other clinical features of chronic liver disease. On abdominal examination there was no organomegaly. He had no neurological deficits.
