Gaucher disease (GD) is a genetic disorder that causes fatty substances to accumulate to harmful levels in organs and tissues, often resulting in hepatosplenomegaly, anemia, thrombocytopenia, bone pain and fractures, and conditions like arthritis. GD is rare, and even specialists struggle to recognize and diagnose the condition. Delays to initiation of therapy are common and can result in irreversible complications.
During this 60-minute symposium live, expert panelists will discuss GD, including its less commonly reported manifestations, diagnostic pathways, and patient-centric multidisciplinary management of the disorder.
