Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, also known as Basal Cell Nevomatosis (CBN), is a rare inherited disorder belonging to the family of neurocristopathies or diseases caused by abnormalities of the neural ridges. We report the case of 4 patients, suffering from this syndrome, followed up in the Stomatology and Maxillofacial Surgery Service in Casablanca, including a familial form in two cases: A mother and her son and 2 isolated cases, followed and treated in our service of maxillofacial surgery of the August 20th hospital in Casablanca. A clinical, biological and radiological assessment was made followed by surgical treatment for the 3 patients, an anatomo-pathological examination and the establishment of a strict monitoring plan.
