Incidental finding of lamellar calcification of the falx cerebri leading to the diagnosis of gorlin-goltz syndrome


Saulite, I; Voykov, B; Mehra, T; Hoetzenecker, Wolfram; Guenova, E (2013). Incidental finding of lamellar calcification of the falx cerebri leading to the diagnosis of gorlin-goltz syndrome. Case Reports in Dermatology, 5(3):301-303.

Abstract

Here, we report the case of an incidental finding of lamellar calcification of the falx cerebri in a routine computed tomography scan of the head after an accidental trauma. This lamellar calcification led to the diagnosis of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS) in the patient and her daughter. Lamellar calcification of the falx cerebri is a pathognomonic feature of GGS. Our case report highlights the importance of a multidisciplinary diagnostic approach to GGS.
