Gaucher disease (GD) is a lysosomal storage disease characterized by deficiency of beta-glucocerebrosidase, which results in accumulation of glucocerebroside in reticuloendothelial system, bone marrow infiltration, progressive hepatosplenomegaly, and skeletal complications. Herein we report a 5-year-old female with GD receiving enzyme replacement therapy who had giant mesenteric lymphadenopathies. Pediatr Blood Cancer 2009;52:870-871. (C) 2009 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
