A 12-year-old girl with severely decompensated abdominal Wilson disease was treated with abdominal dialysis in order to accelerate the excretion of chelated copper. Dialysate without human serum albumin or D-penicillamine was used and was able to accelerate the excretion of chelated copper, with an increment of 5.5-19.7% compared with urinary excretion only.
