AbstractA 21-year-old woman presented with complaints of skin lesions on her face, palms and soles. On examination, 8 to 10 well-defined, pigmented nodules with raised and pearly borders were seen on the face. Multiple pits were present on the palms and soles. Biopsy of both lesions revealed the presence of basal cell epitheliomas. The patient also gave history of removal of a keratocyst of mandible 10 years back. The case was diagnosed as Gorlin’s syndrome. It is atypical due to the low number 01 basal cell epitheliomas, the occurrence of only a single odontogenic cyst and the absence of other features usually associated with this condition.
