Sirs: Detailed autonomic function tests (AFTs) have recently revealed significant abnormalities in almost one-third of patients with Wilson’s disease (WD) [1–4]. However, the time course and reversibility of the autonomic dysfunction in WD are unknown [5]. In addition, it remains unclear whether or not the autonomic dysfunction results from central nervous system lesions. We report a patient with WD who underwent AFTs before and after anti-copper therapy. A 47-year-old woman was referred to our… CONTINUE READING
