Haematological Problems Associated with Gaucher's Disease

WAL Heaton, P Jacobs

Abstract


Five recent cases of Gaucher's disease seen at Groote Schuur Hospital illustrate the haematological complications. The main problem is hypersplenism with secondary thrombocytopenia. Two patients underwent splenectomy for this reason, and one gained lasting improvement. None of the more rare haematological problems was seen in this series.
