Wilson’s disease with Leu492Ser mutation and arylsulfatase A pseudodeficiency: just a coincidence?

Abstract.

Wilson’s disease (WD) is an autosomal recessive disorder of copper transport, related to mutations of the ATP7B gene (McKusick 277900). Here we report a new case of WD in which a rare mutation, Leu492Ser expressed for the first time in homozygosity, is associated with neurological presentation of the disease and arylsulfatase A pseudeficiency.
