Abstract
We experienced two cases of Gaucher's disease of adult type in brother aged four years and two years. The patients showed hepatosplenomegaly with anemia and thrombocytopenia. Typical Gaucher cells were found in bone marrow and biopsy specimens of liver and spleen through light and electron microscopic examination. Splenectomy was followed by improvement of anemia and thrombocytopenia. A brief review of literature was made.
Key Words: Gaucher's disease, Brother
