Wilson’s disease (copper storage disease): Presentation by Prof. Dr. med. Andrea de Gottardi

“What is Wilson’s disease?” Prof. A. De Gottardi gives us an exciting talk about Wilson’s disease and explains what happens when two gene mutations collide in parents and what the consequences can be for the children. The malfunction of copper excretion can cause liver damage, neurological disorders as well as depression, etc. With today’s drug therapy, major damage often does not occur if it is recognised early.
