Answer

Answer

The presence of jaundice, hepatomegaly, abdominal pain, or Kayser-Fleischer rings in the cornea requires further assessment to exclude Wilson disease. Kayser-Fleischer rings may be observed best with a slit-lamp examination. Ophthalmologic consultation is mandatory for patients in whom Wilson disease is suspected.
