We report a family study of a presymptomatic form of Wilson disease. Our report demonstrates that mutation analysis is very useful for diagnosing presymptomatic Wilson disease in patients without consanguineous parents and for assessing the carrier status of the patients' family members. Previously undetected mild cases of Wilson disease could be diagnosed using this methodology.
