Wilson Disease Association (WDA) is non-profit organization dedicated to providing information and support to people with Wilson's disease, a rare inherited disorder of copper metabolism in which copper abnormally accumulates in the liver and is slowly released into other tissues and organs of the body. As this disorder progresses, abnormal copper accumulation may cause liver disease such as inflammation of the liver (hepatitis) and cirrhosis; diminished kidney function; and abnormalities of brain function resulting in muscle rigidity, tremors, speech difficulties, impaired memory and judgment, multiple psychiatric symptoms which often include aggressiveness, hostility, inappropriate behavior, poor school and work performance and distinct personality changes (dementia). The Wilson's Disease Association makes referrals to physicians for appropriate diagnosis and treatment, to genetic counseling, and to support groups. The association also engages in patient and professional education; promotes public awareness of Wilson's disease; conducts annual conferences; and offers educational and support information through its database, directory, regular newsletter, and brochures.
