Wilson disease often debuts with psychiatric symptoms
We present a case of a 17-year-old girl initially suspected of having a psychiatric disease within the affective spectrum. However, thorough evaluation of the overall symptomatology, and a combination of repeated physical examinations and paraclinical testing led to the diagnosis of Wilson disease. This case emphasizes the importance of a broad diagnostic approach to psychiatric patients.
