TYPE 2 GAUCHER DISEASE: ONSET AND EVOLUTION – CASE REPORT

, , , and

ABSTRACT

Gaucher disease is the most common lysosomal storage disorder, with autosomal recessive transmission. The disease is due to glucocerebrosidase enzyme deficiency, resulting in accumulation of glucocerebroside in all organs. The diagnosis is established by measuring enzyme activity. Among the clinical forms, type 2 is the rarest and has the most dismal prognosis. We present the case of an infant found at 5 months of age with neurological symptoms and his subsequent evolution with massive hepatosplenomegaly, being diagnosed with type 2 Gaucher disease.

Keywords: lysosomal storage disorder, type 2 Gaucher disease, neurological manifestations, hepatosplenomegaly, glucocerebrosidase activity
