Abstract

Central nervous system manifestations developed in a patient suffering from the chronic, adult form of Gaucher’s disease. At autopsy, massive systemic fat embolism was found, involving mainly the brain and the lungs. As there was no evidence of bone fracture, or trauma to the adipose tissues, it is presumed that the severe skeletal involvement by the Gaucher’s disease led to the development of the fat embolization.
