The association between type 1 Gaucher disease and PD has been reported in the literature. The clinical picture is characterized by the predominance of bilateral akinetic-rigid signs and poor response to levodopa therapy. The authors describe four patients (two siblings) with type 1 Gaucher disease presenting with the following signs of typical PD: asymmetric onset of rigidity, resting tremor, bradykinesia, and a favorable response to Parkinson therapies.
