Wilson’s disease (WD) is an autosomal recessive disorder of copper metabolism and regulation in the body, which presents with varied clinical symptoms commonly referable to hepatology (cirrhosis), neurology (dyskinesia and movement disorders), and psychiatry (abnormal behavior). The other systems, which may be involved, are endocrine (hypoparathyroidism), musculoskeletal (osteomalacia) and the genito‑reproductive system (miscarriages and still births). We present a case, which was diagnosed as WD during evaluation of primary infertility and subsequently conceived after therapy with zinc.
