We discuss two cases of Gaucher's disease of the adult with neurological complications. First of the patients came to Hospital due to sudden pain in dorso-lumbar region and motor weakness of lower extremities. In the neurological exploration there were no concluding objective deficit signs except an unstable deambulation. After several hours of rest, symptoms disappeared progressively. In the radiology of the raquis a crushed in the last three dorsal vertebral was seen; this finding together with the clinic the patient showed, suggested a mild and transitory medullar compression. Second patient suffered an intraparenchymatous brain hemorrhage on the course of a platelet depletion and with other mild coagulation disorders. This type of complication have never been described in Gaucher's disease.
