Abstract

ABSTRACT: Basal cell carcinoma nevus syndrome (also known as Gorlin syndrome or nevoid basal cell syndrome) is an autosomnal dominant, genetic disorder. The syndrome is passed on by one affected parent or occurs as a spontaneous mutation occurring at conception. Approximately 33% of all affected individuals are the first in their family to have the condition. This first-person story is about experiencing a new systemic treatment.
