Our patient was diagnosed as having Gorlin-Goltz syndrome with numerous BCCs and falx cerebri calcifications, which are among the major criteria, and macrocephaly, frontal bossing, hypertelorism, and presence of medullablastoma, which are among the minor criteria.
Caption: Figure 1: (a) Noncontrast axial CT image, (b) axial diffusion weighted images, (c) axial adjusted diffusion coefficient map that shows bilateral temporal-occipital lobe abscesses (thin arrows) and empyema in the medial left occipital lobe (thick arrow), and (d) axial diffusion weighted image that shows ventriculitis in the right lateral ventricle (short thick arrow), abscess in the left parietal lobe (short thin arrow), and empyema in the posterior falx (long thin arrow) and medial left occipital lobe (long thick arrow).
The edematous range determined a mass effect over the left LV, which it compressed, and over the falx cerebri, with a 7-8 mm right-deviation.
HPCs often arise from dural sinuses, skull base, tentorium, and the falx cerebri.
Most tumors were either extra axial and/or associated to the falx.
Facial abnormalities incude macrocephaly, broad facies, frontal and biparietal bossing, mild mandibular prognathism, odontogenic keratocysts ofjaws, misshapen and/or carious teeth, cleft lip and palate, ectopic calcification of falx cerebri.
Calcium deposition may normally be seen in the choroid plexus, pineal body, falx and Pacchionian bodies: many pathological conditions may also result in calcification.
