Abstract
Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome is an ecto-mesodermal polydysplasia with numerous manifestations that affect multiple organs. The syndrome is an autosomal dominant inherited, with a high penetration and visible expression. The syndrome is characterized by a series of associated anomalies such as cutaneous, dentofacial, skeletal, ophthalmologic, neurological, and genital anomalies. Generally, the jaw cysts are multiple odontogenic keratocysts, affecting any area of maxilla and mandible. Multiple odontogenic keratocysts of this syndrome are more recurrent than the keratocysts of non-syndrome, thus they are treated aggressively for complete removal. We report a case of multiple jaw cysts associated with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. In clinical and radiological examinations, frontal bossing, hypertelorism, mild mental retardation and two odontogenic keratocysts in both the maxilla and mandible were observed. Two cysts were treated by marsupialization. For the management of eruption of unerupted teeth, periodic recall check and orthodontic treatment are required.
Key Words: Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, Multiple odontogenic keratocysts, Marsupialization
