Background: To describe the ocular findings in a 44-year-old white female in whom a diagnosis of Gorlin Syndrome was confirmed by genetic testing, which identified a homozygous mutation in PTCH-1 gene.
Methods: Observational case report of a 44-year-old female who presented with multiple cutaneous basal cell carcinoma, nystagmus, myelinated nerve fiber layer, iris leiomyoma, ovarian leiomyoma and skeletal abnormalities such as prominent frontal bone.
Results: Clinical examination and multimodal imaging documented presence of myelinated nerve fiber layer and whitish nodular iris lesion with leiomyomatous appearance.
Conclusion: Recognition that ocular abnormalities in Gorlin syndrome are frequent with a various range of prevalence. To the best of our knowledge, the following is the first report in the ophthalmic literature of iris and retinal lesion in a patient with a genetically confirmed Gorlin syndrome.
