The Gorlin-Goltz syndrome is an infrequent multisystemic disease, which is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. This shows a high level of penetrance and variable expressiveness, characterized by multiple basal cell nevi or carcinomas, odontogenic keratocysts, palmar and / or plantar pits, calcification of the falx cerebri, and is occasionally associated with internal malignancies. It is fundamental to know the major and minor criteria for the diagnosis and early preventive treatment of this syndrome. Here we report a case of a 30-year-old male with major and minor features of the Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, such as, strabismus, barrel-shaped chest, with drooping shoulders and mild kyphosis, polydactyly, hypertelorism, multiple basal cell carcinomas, calcification of the falx cerebri, C5-C7 bifida spine, and fusion of T1 and T2.
