Indian J Pathol Microbiol. Apr-Jun 2011;54(2):388-90. doi: 10.4103/0377-4929.81649.


Nevoid cell carcinoma syndrome or Gorlin-Goltz syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by multiple basal cell carcinoma, multiple keratocyst tumors, and skeletal anomalies. The Gorlin-Goltz syndrome has been associated with numerous benign and malignant neoplasms. The authors describe a case of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome in association with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the second case described in the English literature.
