Perhaps the most common sign of Type 1 Gaucher disease is an enlargement of the spleen and/or liver. Overactivity of the enlarged spleen may result in an increased tendency for bleeding due to decreased platelets or fatigue related to anemia. Spleen enlargement is often the most frequent initial finding and may be first recognized when the child is as young as 6 months. The spleen may become sufficiently enlarged to affect the child's mobility and to attract attention. A child with severe disease may he shorter than average and may adopt a swayback posture to support the weight of an enlarged abdomen.
