Abstract

A 38 year-old man with a history of painful swelling in the left mandibular angle region and skin lesions on the upper chest is reported. The symptoms, findings, diagnostic criteria and the approach for treatment are reviewed. Histological examinations of mandibular cystic and skin nodular lesions were reported as “Inflamed Keratinous Cyst” and “Basal Cell Carcinoma”. It is important to consider the syndrome encountering multiple jaw cysts because of the high recurrence rate, associated medical problems, and need for close life-long follow-up of this syndrome.
