Gaucher is a rare disease and there are only 14 such cases in India. Andhra Pradesh is the first state in the country to provide treatment for the disease in a government hospital. The announcement follows Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's visit to the flood-affected areas of the Konaseema district.
