Type 1 Gaucher Disease is in fact a childhood disorder, it is not only an adult disorder. The age of presentation can be anytime from infancy until the 9th decade. 65% of the patients may present in the 1st or 2nd decade and 25% from birth to within the first 5 years of age as shown here in the study by Dr. Charrow and others in the International Gaucher Registry.
