Thirty patients with Gaucher's disease have been examined in the authors' clinic; 29 of them suffered from the adult form and one had the juvenile type of the disease. The authors found intraocular abnormalities in four patients: three suffered from uveitis and in one, multiple vitreous opacities were observed. Two of the three patients had bilateral uveitis, while in one the uveitis was confined to the right eye only. In two of the three patients the manifestations of Gaucher's disease were present before the onset of uveitis. In one of the three, however, bilateral uveitis with spontaneous hyphema in the left eye was the presenting symptom. The diagnosis of Gaucher's disease in this case was arrived at during the work-up investigations for the etiology of the ocular manifestations. Initially the ocular symptoms in these three patients manifested as acute anterior uveitis, becoming chronic and involving also the posterior segments at a later stage.
