Microdeletion of 9q22.3: A patient with minimal deletion size associated with a severe phenotype.

Am J Med Genet A 2021 May 7. Epub 2021 May 7.

Mater Research Institute-University of Queensland, Translational Research Institute, Woolloongabba, Queensland, Australia.

Basal cell nevus syndrome (also known as Gorlin Syndrome; MIM109400) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by recurrent pathological features such as basal cell carcinomas and odontogenic keratocysts as well as skeletal abnormalities. Most affected individuals have point mutations or small insertions or deletions within the PTCH1 gene on human chromosome 9, but there are some cases with more extensive deletion of the region, usually including the neighboring FANCC and/or ERCC6L2 genes. We report a 16-year-old patient with a deletion of approximately 400,000 bases which removes only PTCH1 and some non-coding RNA genes but leaves FANCC and ERCC6L2 intact. Read More

Neo-adjuvant Vismodegib followed by radiation in locally advanced basal cell carcinoma.

Curr Probl Cancer 2021 Apr 1:100736. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Department of Medical Oncology, St James Hospital, Dublin 8, Ireland; Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.

Basal cell carcinomas occur in up to 39% of Caucasian men and 28% of women. Rarely it can present a management dilemma in patients with neglected locally advanced disease of large dimension or involvement of critical structures. The Hedgehog pathway is constitutively active in almost all basal cell carcinomas and patients with Naevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome have germline mutations in the Patched tumor suppressor gene, a Hedgehog pathway component, on chromosome 9q.

Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome with Unusual Associated Findings: A Case Report with 17 Years of Follow-Up.

Am J Case Rep 2021 Apr 22;22:e928670. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

School of Dentistry, Federal University of Pará (UFPA), Belém, PA, Brazil.

BACKGROUND Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), also known as Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS), is an inherited autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in the patched (PTCH) tumor-suppressor gene, which has high penetrance and variable phenotypic expressivity. In 1960, Gorlin and Goltz defined the condition by 3 main characteristics: multiple basal cell carcinomas, odontogenic keratocyst (OKC), and skeletal anomalies. Nowadays, many neurologic, ophthalmic, endocrine, and genital manifestations are known to be associated with this syndrome. Read More

Cutaneous Keratocyst With D2-40 Immunoreactivity in Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome.

Am J Dermatopathol 2021 Feb 16. Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Department of Dermatology, Georgetown University School of Medicine, Washington, DC; Department of Dermatology, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, DC; Aurora Diagnostics/MidAtlantic Pathology Services, Sterling, VA; and Children's National Medical Center, Washington, DC.

Abstract: Although not a diagnostic criterion for basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS, OMIM#109400), cutaneous cysts, particularly epidermoid cysts, are common in this condition. Cutaneous keratocysts, on the other hand, are extremely rare in general and have been identified in only 5 patients with BCNS. Here, we describe a BCNS patient with a cutaneous keratocyst that demonstrated D2-40 (podoplanin) immunoreactivity, which has been detected in odontogenic keratocysts but not cutaneous keratocysts.

Összefoglaló. A Gorlin-Goltz-szindróma - más néven naevoid basalsejtes carcinoma szindróma - egy ritka, viszont számos orvosi társszakmát érintő, rendkívül változatos megjelenésű és genetikailag is heterogén betegség. Bár a tudományos kutatások egyik kedvenc területe, az aránylag alacsony betegszám, valamint a genotípus és a fenotípus közötti, igen komplex összefüggések miatt a kórképről meglévő ismereteink még nem teljesek.

Retrospective analysis of the histopathologic features of basal cell carcinomas in pediatric patients with basal cell nevus syndrome.

J Cutan Pathol 2021 Mar 17;48(3):390-395. Epub 2020 Nov 17.

Department of Pediatrics, Section of Dermatology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS) is an autosomal dominant condition caused most often by a loss-of-function mutation in the Patched-1 (PTCH1) gene. It is characterized by the development of varied benign and malignant tumors, including numerous cutaneous basal cell carcinomas (BCCs). The PTCH1 gene is integral in hair follicle development and loss of function mutation may lead to BCCs with an infundibulocystic histopathology in BCNS patients. Read More
