Author information

Department of Radiology, University Health Center of Pittsburgh, PA.


Cerebral CT performed in patients with Wilson disease (hepatolenticular degeneration) often reveals abnormalities of the putamen, globus pallidus, thalamocapsular region, cerebral cortex, dentate nucleus, and brain stem. We report a patient with Wilson disease who demonstrated rapid reversal of CT abnormalities following orthotopic liver transplantation.
