Hepatosplenomegaly is quite frequent, bone crisis may occur, there are no cardiac manifestations, there are no neuro-degenerating manifestations and the survival is variable, ethnic predilection is pan-ethnic but it is more common among people of Ashkenazi jewish ancestry and this type of Gaucher Disease is almost invariably associated with at least one N370S disease mutation.
