Signs and Symptoms

Both Gaucher type 1 and ASMD type B are multi-systemic disorders and present with similar symptoms. The systems indicated by the green lines are common to both diseases and include anemia, thrombocytopenia, splenomegaly, displacement of normal bone marrow by storage cells, bone infarctions, fractures, and growth delay in children.

*Erlenmeyer deformity is not typically seen in ASMD.
