Neurologic complications of nonneuronopathic Gaucher's disease

Arch Neurol. 1991 Dec;48(12):1271-2. doi: 10.1001/archneur.1991.00530240075025.


We describe eight patients with type 1 Gaucher's disease who developed neurologic complications that were secondary to systemic features of the illness. Four patients experienced neurologic difficulties because of coagulopathy, and the other four patients had involvement of the nervous system secondary to skeletal disease. Early recognition of these complications in patients with type 1 Gaucher's disease may lead to improved neurologic outcome.
