Wilson's disease can manifest as neurological disorder without hepatic involvement. However, first presentation as status epilepticus is extremely rare. Herein, we report a case where a 21-year-old male presented with status epilepticus. Clinical background, biochemical tests and typical magnetic resonance imaging findings in the form of "Face of giant Panda sign" confirmed the diagnosis of Wilson's disease.
