Asper medical literatures over a period of 34 yearsonly 17 cases ofNevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome have been reported from India 5. Nowadays gene mutation analysis, if feasible, can confirm diagnosis. The role of this pathway in embryogenesis is well known. Ongoing surveillance as well as treatment for sequelae of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome GGS requires regular followups times a year or more to detect new odontogenic cysts and basal cell carcinomas that occur continuously [ 81011 ].

Aspiration was performed with the mandibular lesion and showed a cheesy fluid which was sent for histopathological evaluation.

The role of orthodontist synfrome the diagnosis of Gorlin syndrome.

The importance of recognition of this syndrome is because of its malignant potential. GGS is a multidisciplinary problem, early diagnosis of which allows introduction of secondary prophylaxis and following an appropriate treatment gorlun delay the progress of the syndrome.

Open in a golz window. N Engl J Med. The odontogenic keratocyst and its occurrence in the nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. Indian J Dent Res. If loss of syndrrome normal remaining allele or second injury happens, the cell may become malignant, as these changes act as second hit 4,5.

Bifid, fused, or markedly splayed ribs. A year-old male patient reported to the OPD of our department with a chief compliant of swelling in the right lower back tooth region since 3 months and gave a history of extraction with respect to 46 and 47 carious gorlij 7 months ago.

The figure shows frontal bossing, broad nasal bridge, hypertelorism, and mandibular prognathism. Lateral photograph shows the increased occipitofrontal circumference.

Nevoid basal-cell carcinoma syndrome

It involves multiple organ systems. Glltz history was insignificant, but family history revealed his 9-year-old daughter had similar bilateral mandibular swelling, but no further investigations had been done. Antenatal diagnosis Antenatal diagnosis is possible with ultrasound scans and DNA analysis extracted from fetal cells after amniocentesis or chronic villus sampling.

Due to mutation of this gene, production of patched-1 gets prevented or an abnormal version is produced.


In all seven cysts, histopathologic features were suggestive of OKC [ Figure 7 ]. Please review our privacy policy. Second, in a minority of patients particularly, young patients with multiple cyststhe P-OKC is a part of the Jaw cyst-Basal cell nevus-Bifid rib syndrome. The chest radiograph showed a bifid fifth rib on the right side [ Gorpin 5 ].

Diagnosis is based upon established major and minor clinical and radiological criteria and ideally confirmed by deoxyribo nucleic acid analysis. The aggressive behaviour and high recurrence rate of syndromic OKCs is due to higher rate of proliferation of epithelial lining 9. Though laboratory tests are not specific for Gorlin syndrome, syndromic patients have high levels of cyclic adenosine monophosphate and impaired phosphate dieresis on parathormone challenge 7.

Further evaluation was done with facial bone CT, which revealed a well- defined cystic expansile lesion, measuring 3. The swelling was mildly painful since last 10 days.
