University of Southern California - Gaucher Disease Center

Gaucher Disease was first described in 1882 by Phillippe C. E. Gaucher, whose name it continues to bear. The disease is an inherited disorder resulting from a deficiency of the enzyme, acid ß-glucosidase. The accumulated substrate, glucosylceramide, is phagocytized by macrophages, which in turn are deposited in the reticuloendothelial system of the liver, spleen and bone marrow resulting often in hepatosplenomegaly and bone marrow infiltration leading to pancytopenias, infarctions and fractures.[8,9] The pathophysiology of Gaucher bone disease is poorly understood.
