A disease in which excessive amounts of copper accumulates mainly in the liver and basal ganglia of the brain due to abnormal copper metabolism. In children with Wilson's Disease, symptoms usually appear after the age of 5 years. At first, it shows asymptomatic hepatomegaly in which only liver enzymes increase, but eventually progresses to chronic active hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, and portal hypertension.

Hereditary Hearing Loss Screening Test

70% of hereditary hearing loss develops from non-syndromic hearing loss. Hence, it is harder to suspect compared to other diseases. If you miss the time your baby can be detected, the baby may develop impairments of language development, cognitive ability, reading, and learning ability.If the cause of hearing loss is identified early, and appropriate measures are taken on time, the affected child’s linguistic ability can be developed to a level similar to that of non-patients.
