Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An 18-year old woman with type I Gaucher disease and two uncomplicated pregnancies is described. Although she experienced one miscarriage and pregnancy was associated with exaggeration of the clinical symptoms, leading to the diagnosis of the disorder, both her 2nd and 3rd pregnancies were uneventful and deterioration of her clinical situation was not observed. The issue of criteria for risk assessment in pregnancy of type I Gaucher disease patients is addressed.
