We report on a 25-year-old man, referred for atypical chest pain and negative T waves in leads V5-V6. A cardiac tumor, localized in the posterolateral left ventricular wall was diagnosed in this patient by nuclear techniques and bidimensional echocardiography. A complex form of pluridistrectual dysmorphic disorder (hypertelorism, prognathism, frontal bossing, multiple cysts of the mandible, calcification in falx cerebri, etc) was also present, suggesting a limited form of Gorlin's syndrome (nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome).
