In brief: Prognosis of WD
The prognosis in patients with wilson disease is excellent for most.
The neurologic, psychiatric, and liver abnormalities gradually improve with treatment. Poorer outcomes are seen in those with advanced disease and those who present with rapidly progressive liver failure and breakdown of red blood cells (hemolysis).
