Foamy and sea-blue histiocytes were noted in the bone marrow. He also had biopsy proven pulmonary and liver involvement with sea-blue and foamy histiocytes. Neurological examination was normal. The diagnosis was lipid storage disease, most likely non-neuropathic Niemann-Pick disease with sea-blue histiocytes.
