What is
Gaucher Disease?

Gaucher (pronounced go-shay) disease is a rare, progressive, inherited condition that
causes a fatty substance, called glucosylceramide (gloo-ko-sil-saramide, also called
GL-1), to build up in certain areas of the body, including the spleen, liver, and bone.
Symptoms can mimic other diseases. If you suspect Gaucher disease, get tested.
