Abstract

Wilson disease (WD) is an autosomal recessive inherited disease caused by abnormalities of the copper-transporting protein encoding gene ATP7B. Wilson's disease can cause various types of renal involvement. We present the case of a 56-year-old male liver transplant receiver patient who had proteinuria and cellulitis.
