Gorlin – Goltz syndrome: An often missed diagnosis

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Gorlin-Goltz syndrome due to its high variability in expression are often not diagnosed as the syndrome and often managed same as that of odontogenic keratocyst. But a more careful approach for the syndrome is needed as there is high chance of malignant changes owing to improper management of the syndrome. In this manuscript a case report of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome with the diagnostic features of the same in Indian population along with the difference in treatment protocol from treating an odontogenic keratocyst is described with review of literature

Figure 3: Current computed tomography

Mentions: She gave no familial history of similar lesions. X-rays advised from our department revealed more findings. CT revealed persisting lesions in the previously operated sites [Figure 3] along with the lesions associated with the mandibular ramus region bilaterally. The mandibular lesions were also associated with impacted teeth.
