Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is a rare, still well-defined autosomal dominant disorder, characterized by multiple cutaneous basal cell carcinomas, jaw keratocysts and a variety of other tumors and developmental anomalies. The nevi turn malignant with time, and thus, early diagnosis, follow-up, and treatment are imperative. This article presents a case of a 60-year-old man with classical form of NBCCS. The images from conventional radiography, CT and MRI are discussed in the context of clinical presentation of the disease, and the importance of imaging modalities in the diagnostic process is stressed.
