Abstract

The authors illustrate the spectrum of Gaucher's disease involving the eye in the case of a 51-year-old man suffering from Type I Gaucher's disease who presented with unusual macular changes. This is the first report of chronic adult non-neuronopathic disease (Type I) with a plaque-like mass at the fovea. Our hypothesis is that the lesion at the fovea is probably an aggregation of Gaucher's cells.
