Abstract

The hematologist is at the forefront of specialists to whom patients with Gaucher disease present because of cytopenia and hepatosplenomegaly. Usually, patients with such symptoms have undergone trephine biopsy. We present the cases of two patients in whom Gaucher disease was suspected because of the discovery of Gaucher cells in trephine biopsy, and subsequently confirmed via enzymatic and molecular investigations. (Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica 2011; Vol. 49, No. 2, pp. 352–356)
