Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (also known as nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome) was first reported in 1894, but described by Gorlin and Goltz in 1960 as a distinct entity consisting of ectodermal and mesodermal abnormalities. It is an hereditary autosomal dominant disease with a prevalence estimated in various studies to be between 1/57 000 and 1/256 000, and a male:female ratio of 1:1. We describe in brief the important radiological features of an accidentally detected case of Gorlin syndrome in the form of a pictorial interlude.
