Answer

Medicolegal issues may arise if the diagnosis is not considered in the face of appropirate clues.

Also critical is to provide the patient with information and to screen siblings of the index case for the possibility of Wilson disease, because the estimated frequency is 1 in 4 in situations in which the siblings have the same parents.
