Optical coherence tomography of the Kayser-Fleischer ring: an ancillary diagnostic tool for Wilson's disease in children.
BMJ Case Rep 2017; 2017BC

Abstract

This report presents anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) images of Kayser-Fleischer ring (KFR) in a child. The AS-OCT images highlight differential reflectivity of the KFR depending on amount of copper deposited in cornea, thus supporting the role of AS-OCT as a follow-up tool. Utility of AS-OCT for diagnosing and documenting the KFR in children otherwise uncooperative for detailed slit lamp examination is discussed.
