Is Kayser–Fleischer rings is specific to Wilson disease ?
Kayser–Fleischer (KF) rings
Sunflower cataract and KF rings.
What happens to Kayser–Fleischer rings after treatment?
Kayser–Fleischer rings and impairment of vision
Similar spots seen in iris like Brushfield spots Found in individuals without Down syndrome.
Krückmann-Wolfflin bodies- these spots typically are less well defined, fewer in number and more peripherally located than the Brushfield spots of trisomy 21.
Rarely seen in individuals without NF1 like segmental neurofibromatosis and Watson syndrome.
