Answer

Although no individual clinical or laboratory finding is definitively diagnostic for fulminant Wilson disease, the combination of low serum transaminases, low serum alkaline phosphatase, hemolysis, and evidence of renal Fanconi syndrome is characteristics of a fulminant presentation of Wilson disease. Critically important is early recognition.
