Bone pain can be associated with fractures. The pain may be of severe grade.

Increased tendency to bleed: There can be repeated bleeds in the nostrils or nasal cavities. Bruising in the skin, called ecchymosis can also result.

Older patients have an increased risk of certain cancers like multiple myeloma (uncontrolled proliferation of plasma cells). Type 2 Gaucherís disease may cause neurological complications like:

  • Seizures
  • Difficulty walking
  • Swallowing problems

Type 3 Gaucherís disease can damage heart valves by causing calcification (deposition of calcium).
