D-penicillamine-induced Status Dystonicus in A Patient with Wilson’s Disease: A Diagnostic & Therapeutic Challenge
Wilson's disease is an autosomal-recessive disorder of copper metabolism resulting from the absence or dysfunction of a copper-transporting protein. The disease is mainly seen in children, adolescents and young adults, and is characterized by hepatobiliary, neurologic, psychiatric and ophthalmologic (Kayser-Fleischer rings) manifestations. Mechanism of status dystonicus in WD is not clear. We present here a case study of Wilson’s disease in 14 year old child with dystonia not responded with routine therapy.
