Core Tip This is the first report on Gaucher disease (GD) originating from Montenegro that presents clinical phenotypes of GD and glucocerebrosidase (GBA) gene mutations in patients in Montenegro that are diagnosed with GD and genotype/phenotype correlations. While GBA gene sequencing revealed a homozygosity for the N370S mutation in 1 patient, the genotypes of the other patients were N370S/55bp deletion, N370S/D409H (in 2 patients), and H255Q/N370S (1 patient). The phenotypes of the GD type 1 encountered were severe but all responded well to enzyme replacement therapy. Genetic testing for their progeny was also planned.
