Abstract

Basal cell nevus (Gorlin-Goltz) syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disorder with multiple developmental anomalies and predisposition to various neoplasms. We present a 60 year old male with pigmented, ulcerated skin lesions in face, neck and trunk, histologically proved to be basal cell carcinomas. Mild exopthalmos, hypertelorism, chest wall deformity & scoliosis were noted. Radiological imaging showed calcification of falx cerebri & tentorium cerebelli, bridging of sella turcica, right third, fourth and fifth bifid ribs, scoliosis of lumbar spine, odontogenic keratocyst of mandible and flame shaped lucencies in hands.
