Wilson’s disease (WD) Disease Understanding
Wilson’s disease (WD) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by excess copper stored in various body tissues, particularly the liver, brain, and corneas of the eyes. The disease is progressive and, if left untreated, it may cause liver (hepatic) disease, central nervous system dysfunction, and death. Early diagnosis and treatment may prevent serious long-term disability and life-threatening complications.
WD is a rare genetic disorder beginning with liver dysfunction where damage begins by 6 years of age, but it is usually present clinically in the teenage years or early 20s. Common signs of associated liver disease include a yellow discoloration (jaundice) of the skin, mucous membranes and the membranes (sclera) that line the eye, swelling (edema) of the legs and abdomen (ascites) due to abnormal retention of fluid, presence of abnormal blood vessels in the esophagus that may bleed (esophageal varices), a tendency for bruising and prolonged bleeding, and excessive tiredness (fatigue). Some individuals with Wilson’s disease may have only liver function abnormalities and may show no other symptoms until many years later.
Mutations in the ATP7B gene are known to cause WD. This gene encodes a protein that plays a vital role in transporting copper from the liver to the rest of the body. It also helps remove excess copper from the body. Mutations in the ATP7B gene prevent this protein from working properly, leading to an accumulation of copper in the body. Because high copper levels are toxic, this build-up can damage tissues and organs and cause the many signs and symptoms of WD.
As prompt diagnosis is crucial to initiate treatment hopefully in the early, asymptomatic stage of the disease and not when liver decompensation or advanced neurological irreversible damage has already ensued, family screening is warranted. In this scenario, the best approach is to complete copper studies in first- and second-degree relatives of the index case.
