Abstract

Gaucher disease (GD) is the most prevalant lysosomal lipid storage disease that results from loss of function of acid beta-glucosidase due to mutations in the glucocerebrosidase gene. Common features of all types of GD include hepatosplenomegaly, cytopenia, and various patterns of bone and lung involvement.
