Özet

A very rare case of type 1 Gaucher's disease with pseudotumor formation in the right tibia is presented. In addition to the characteristic radiographic finding of distal femoral flaring (Erlenmeyer flask deformity), a lobulated osteolytic area with surrounding sclerosis was seen in the proximal metaphysis of the right tibia. Adjacent to this pseudotumor appearance was an old pathologic fracture and no significant soft tissue swelling was evident, both of these features being reported for the first-time in association with Gaucher's disease.
