Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome; Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome; ; Gorlin Syndrome; Gorlin-Goltz Syndrome; Hermans-Herzberg Phakomatosis; NBCCS; Nevus, Epitheliomatosis Multiplex; Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), also known as Gorlin or Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, is an inherited disorder characterized by a tendency to develop multiple cancerous cysts, lesions (nevi) of the skin and lining of the mouth, and other developmental and systemic defects; Almost any of the body"s organ systems may be affected; The lesions (nevus, nevi) are usually found in the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) or in the mucous membranes of the mouth; The connective tissues

and the nervous and vascular (blood vessel) systems of the body may also be affected; The skin lesions are limited in size, but not in number, and are not usually due to any external causes--------[NORD]---------------------
