The middle-aged man whose case is discussed here harbored Type 7 Gaucher's disease in subtle form. This hereditary disorder was partly disguised by a long history of peptic ulcer. Still a third cause for anemia was eventually uncovered in a surprise conclusion. The major discussion deals with the clinical aspects, microscopic pathology, genetics, and biochemistry of Gaucher's disease and related sphingolipidoses.
