Nevoid basal cell carcinoma,
known as Gorlin Goltz Syndrome, is a rare hereditary condition, characterized
by a wide range of developmental abnormalities and a predisposition to
neoplasms. In this report, we discuss a case of a patient with Gorlin Goltz Syndrome, who was 16 years old when first admitted for an initial appointment. The
patient was diagnosed, treated and followed up for 7 years to present day. This
syndrome is associated with a broad spectrum of anomalies and neoplasms as
basal cell carcinomas, odontogenic keratocysts, palmar and/or plantar pits, and
ectopic calcifications of the falx cerebri. It affects multiple organ systems,
which include skeletal, teeth, jaw, skin, eyes, reproductive organs, and neural
system. All the features however, are rarely observed in a single patient.
The following paper presents the significance of early diagnosis of Gorlin
Goltz Syndrome and the importance of a multidisciplinary approach in providing
proper treatment for the patient.
