Abstract

Wilson disease is an inborn error of copper metabolism that has neurological and hepatic manifestations. We report a 13 years old girl and a 12 years old boy with Wilson disease. In both patient, brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed marked involvement of basal ganglia and other deep gray nuclei. Considering that this is a treatable disease, it should be included in the differential diagnosis of the so called "striatal necrosis of childhood".
