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 11: Enucleation

Mentions: In the maxillary region, a crevicular incision was placed posterior to the premolar region extending posteriorly. Intraoperatively, buccal cortex was found intact on both sides. A bony window was created on the posterior antral wall, and the lesion was enucleated along with the entire lining enmass and chemical cauterization done with Carnoy's solution. A dense proteinaceous material such as keratin was found within the lesion [Figures 10 and 11].
