Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (Gorlin syndrome) is a rare, autosomal dominant syndrome that is known to have variable expressivity in multiple organ systems. We describe the case of a young male child with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome and scalp lesions, including a branchial cleft cyst with respiratory epithelium and a rudimentary meningocele. These are both new, previously unreported findings, possibly associated with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome.
