Spleen and liver are common organs involved in Gaucher disease (GD), while few reports have been published on the measurement of volume and lipid content of liver and spleen using MR. This study recruited 42 patients with GD by 1.5T MR. Our results showed that enlargement of spleen was more severe than liver. Spleen has higher lipid content than liver among these patients, while both of them exhibited higher fat fraction than normal value. Our study suggests MRI can be employed to monitor the disease progression and effect of the treatment in children and adolescent patients with GD.
