Abstract

Gaucher disease is characterized by the deposit of glucosylceramide in the spleen, liver and bone marrow. This lipid lysosomal storage disease shows autosomal recessive inheritance and. Glucosylceramide is stored in lysosomal bodies of the cells of the reticuloendothelial system as a result of a genetic defect in glucosylceramide hydrolase (b-glucosidase). Massive splenomegaly and cytopenias are seen in Gaucher disease. We presented a 37-year-old woman admitted to our hospital with cytopenias and splenomegaly and diagnosed as Gaucher disease in adult age.
