A patient with Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome) is described. This disease has an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern with complete penetrance and extremely variable expressivity. The case report seems to represent a new mutation. Gorlin-Goltz syndrome is characterized by a lot of symptoms primarily involving the skin, central nervous system, and skeletal system. In 90% of the patients, nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome is associated with recurring odontogenic keratocysts. Also our patient showed recurrent jaw and maxillary cysts, for this reasons he has been followed for 10 years to the Oral Pathology Service of Galliera Hospital.
