The most common symptoms of Gaucher disease include hepatosplenomegaly and anemia and thrombocytopenia due to hypersplenism. We describe the case of a patient with Gaucher disease who had cachexia, massive hepatomegaly, and multiple focal hepatic lesions. The clinical and radiologic findings suggested malignancy. A biopsy specimen was taken from a hepatic lesion and revealed infiltration by Gaucher cells. We discuss our findings in light of the putative increased incidence of hematologic malignancies in patients with Gaucher disease.
