We performed pretreatment brain MRIs in 25 patients with neurologically symptomatic Wilson's disease (WD) and clinical and MRI follow-up in 16 of them. All 25 pretreatment MRIs revealed abnormalities, with abnormal high-signal intensity (HSI) in bilateral thalami being the most common (92%). HSI lesions in the brainstem (84%) and the basal ganglia (72%) were also common. Brain atrophy was present in 88% of the 25 patients. In the follow-up period of 5 to 24 months, during which the patients… CONTINUE READING
