L.M. Hubers & A.R. Schuurman

Copper accumulation in the brain and liver may lead to neuropsychiatric symptoms and liver disease. ‘Kayser Fleischer rings’, due to copper deposition in the cornea, was first described in early 1900’s by two German ophthalmologists, dr. Kayser and dr. Fleischer, from Tübingen, who thought it was a sign of multiple sclerosis.
