Abstract

This is an observational study demonstrating the effectiveness of pulsed dye laser (PDL) as a treatment of basal cell carcinomas (BCC) in patients with Gorlin Syndrome. Over 200 BCCs localized to the head, neck, trunk, and extremities of a patient suffering from Gorlin Syndrome were successfully treated with PDL without subsequent scarring. PDL is a simple and rapid modality to destroy BCCs arising in patients with Gorlin Syndrome resulting in a preferable cosmetic outcome.
