History, Important Milestones, and the Future

  • George J. Brewer

Abstract

This chapter is designed to briefly review some of the important history of Wilson’s disease, including a list of what I consider to be the most important historical milestones. We will then end with a section on what I consider to be the most important future challenges and needs in Wilson’s disease, primarily with an eye toward improving patient recognition, diagnosis, and management.
