La degeneracion hepatolenticular o enfermedad de Wilson (EW) es una condicion clinica hereditaria que resulta de una mutacion del gen que codifica para la proteina ATP7B (Wilson ATPasa) en el cromosoma 13q14; su herencia es autosomica recesiva y se caracteriza por acumulacion de cobre en diferentes organos por la incapacidad del cuerpo para excretarlo (1).
