Pseudo-Kayser-Fleischer ring of the cornea associated with non-Wilsonian liver disease. A case report and literature review.
Cornea 1993; 12(1):74-7C

Abstract

The Kayser-Fleischer ring of the cornea is usually considered a pathognomonic finding of Wilson's disease. A case of a Kayser-Fleischer ring associated with non-Wilsonian liver disease is presented. The pathophysiology of copper deposition in the cornea and the differential diagnosis of this rare finding are discussed.
