Diagnosis of storage diseases in children by bone marrow examination.
Pak Paed J Jan ;19(1):15-7.
Bone marrow aspiration performed during a period of three years from January 1992 to December 1994 were analysed. A total of 590 bone marrow aspirations were done. Storage disorders were diagnosed in 2.4% cases. There were 10 cases of Niemann Pick disease (1.6%) and 5 cases of Gaucher disease (0.8%). The microscopic features of storage cells in the bone marrow were typical and diagnosis was made by this inexpensive and easily available procedure.
