    hallo Dr.Soniawe thought about it although liver 4cm may be due to the lung pathologywhat against that areliver function is normal also wilson disease affect is mainly extrapyramidal +slitlamb examination shows no abnormality in the eyewe thought really about autosomal recessive hereditary spastic paraplegia which explains most of signs and the patient is going a chromosomal analysis nowregards
