Aim of the study The aim of the study is to present a particular case of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS) and to assess the importance of both clinical and radiological findings in the management of this rare disease. Material and methods We studied a GGS case from our hospital and integrated his clinical and radiological findings in order to assess the importance of conventional radiography, computer tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and cone beam computer tomography (CB-CT). Results In this particular case we illustrate the role of MRI and CT examination in determining facial BCC extension and respectively GGS skeletal features. Conclusions Even if GGS is a rare chronic condition, if not periodically and properly investigated, it can lead to invasive basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) or other complication like facial deformities, mandibular fractures caused by keratocystic odontogenic cyst (OKCs).
