Gaucher disease is an inherited disorder that affects many of the body's organs and tissues.
The signs and symptoms of this condition vary widely among affected individuals.
How common is Gaucher disease?
Gaucher disease occurs in 1 in 50,000 to 100,000 people in the general population.
How do people inherit Gaucher disease?
This condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, which means both copies of the gene in each cell have mutations. The parents of an individual with an autosomal recessive condition each carry one copy of the mutated gene, but they typically do not show signs and symptoms of the condition.
