A defect in this protein results in progressive copper accumulation in hepatocytes, ultimately leading to hepatic dysfunction. Once the liver’s capacity to store copper is exceeded, unbound copper becomes deposited in other tissues and organs, including the brain. It is assumed that cellular damage is due to direct copper toxicity, but recent evidence suggests that copper elevation induces cell death by reducing levels of XIAP, a protein that inhibits apoptosis. The neuroimaging findings presumably reflect a combination of edema, spongy or cystic gray matter degeneration, gliosis, myelinolysis, and demyelination.
