Abstract

Gaucher's disease (GD) is the most common lysosomal storage disease with a prevalence of 1 out of 75000 births and an even higher prevalence among Ashkenazi Jews. In the present overview, we will describe the pathological and clinical aspects as well as the treatment of the disease. Special attention will be paid to the recently described association between GD and Parkinson's disease (PD).
