Abstract: Gaucher's disease is a rare disease of progressive evolution characterized by a lysosomal storage disorder. It is rarely responsible for femoral fracture. Patients with Gaucher disease may present with musculoskeletal complications, including osteopenia, medullary bone infarcts, and avascular necrosis. We report a case of femur fracture due to gaucher disease in a 28-year-old woman who underwent two operations for pathological femoral fractures.
