ABSTRACT:Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS) is an infrequent multisystemic disease with an autosomal dominant inherited disorder characterized by the presence of multiple keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOT) in the jaws, multiple basal cell nevi carcinomas, and skeletal abnormalities. Early diagnosis of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome is essential as it may progress to aggressive basal cell carcinomas and neoplasias. In this paper, a case of GGS in a 19 year old male is reported and the literature is reviewed.
