  • [Title] Quantitative analysis of the epithelial lining architecture in radicular cysts and odontogenic keratocysts.
  • BACKGROUND: This paper describes a quantitative analysis of the cyst lining architecture in radicular cysts (of inflammatory aetiology) and odontogenic keratocysts (thought to be developmental or neoplastic) including its 2 counterparts: solitary and associated with the Basal Cell Naevus Syndrome (BCNS).
  • METHODS: Epithelial linings from 150 images (from 9 radicular cysts, 13 solitary keratocysts and 8 BCNS keratocysts) were segmented into theoretical cells using a semi-automated partition based on the intensity of the haematoxylin stain which defined exclusive areas relative to each detected nucleus.
  • Case-wise discrimination between radicular cysts and keratocyst was highly accurate (with an error of just 3.3%).
  • However, the odontogenic keratocyst subtypes could not be reliably separated into the original classes, achieving discrimination rates slightly above random allocations (60%).
  • CONCLUSION: The methodology presented is able to provide new measures of epithelial architecture and may help to characterise and compare tissue spatial organisation as well as provide useful procedures for automating certain aspects of histopathological diagnosis.

2. Bibliowicz J, Gross JM: Expanded progenitor populations, vitreo-retinal abnormalities, and Müller glial reactivity in the zebrafish leprechaun/patched2 retina. BMC Dev Biol; 2009 Oct 19;9:52
ZFIN. ZFIN .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Hh signaling has been shown to control both population size and cell cycle kinetics of proliferating retinal progenitors, and to modulate differentiation within the retina by regulating the timing of cell cycle exit.
  • While cell cycle exit has in turn been shown to control cell fate decisions within the retina, a direct role for the Hh pathway in retinal cell fate decisions has yet to be established in vivo.
  • While lep/ptc2 mutants possessed more cells in their retinas, all cell types, except for Müller glia, were present at identical ratios as those observed in wild-type siblings. lep/ptc2 mutants possessed a localized upregulation of GFAP, a marker for 'reactive' glia, as well as morphological abnormalities at the vitreo-retinal interface, where Müller glial endfeet terminate.
  • CONCLUSION: Our results indicate that Patched2-dependent Hh signaling does not likely play an integral role in neuronal cell fate decisions in the zebrafish retina. ptc2 deficiency in zebrafish results in defects at the vitreo-retinal interface and Müller glial reactivity.
  • These phenotypes are similar to the ocular abnormalities observed in human patients suffering from Basal Cell Naevus Syndrome (BCNS), a disorder that has been linked to mutations in the human PTCH gene (the orthologue of the zebrafish ptc2), and point to the utility of the lep/ptc2 mutant line as a model for the study of BCNS-related ocular pathologies.
  • Our findings regarding CMZ progenitor proliferation suggest that, in the zebrafish retina, Hh pathway activity may not affect cell cycle kinetics; rather, it likely regulates the size of the retinal progenitor pool in the CMZ.

3. Guruprasad Y, Prabhu PR: Gorlin-Goltz syndrome with situs oppositus. Natl J Maxillofac Surg; 2010 Jan;1(1):58-62

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Gorlin-Goltz syndrome with situs oppositus.
  • Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, also known as nevoid basal cell carcicoma syndrome, is caused due to a genetic alteration produced by a mutation in the "Patched" tumor suppressor gene, and it is inherited in a dominant autosomal way, though sporadic cases have been found.
  • This syndrome shows a high penetrance and variable expressiveness.
  • It is a multisystemic process that is characterized by the presence of multiple pigmented basocellular carcinomas, keratocysts in the jaws, palmar and/or plantar pits and calcification of the falx cerebri.
  • The latter include numerous skeletal, dermatology related and neurological anomalies, among others.
  • In some occasions, the presence of very aggressive basocellular carcinomas has been described as well as other malignant neoplasia.
  • Due to the importance of oral maxillofacial manifestations of this syndrome, it is fundamental to know its characteristics in order to make a diagnosis, to provide an early preventive treatment and to establish right genetic advice.
  • We report a rare association of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome with situs oppositus.

  • [Title] Gorlin syndrome or basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS): A case report.
  • Gorlin syndrome, also known as Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome (BCNS), is a rare autosomal dominant disorder with complete penetrance and variable expressivity.
  • This syndrome is characterized by developmental anomalies, such as odentogenic keratocysts of the mandible and postnatal tumors, especially multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCCs).
  • The prevalence of this syndrome is variously estimated to be 1 in 60,000 to 1 in 120,000 persons.
  • Mutation in a tumor suppressor, the PTCH1 gene residing on long arm of Ch 9, is responsible for the development of many postnatal tumors.
  • Patients with Gorlin syndrome show multiple abnormalities, none of which is unique to this condition.
  • Our case had almost all the features of this rare syndrome.

  • [Title] [Basal cell naevus syndrome as the cause of a chronic foot ulcer].
  • He had previously been diagnosed with basal cell naevus syndrome but had withdrawn from follow-up.
  • There was a nodular skin defect over the first metatarsophalangeal joint, which was shown by histopathology to be a basal cell carcinoma, and the ulcer was bordered by a raised wall.
  • Further physical examination revealed more than 200 dermal lesions which were identified by the dermatologist who was called in for consultation as basal cell carcinomas; multiple depressions due to abnormal local keratinisation were also seen on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet.
  • These findings led to a diagnosis of 'basal cell naevus syndrome'.
  • The patient was treated by amputation of the lower leg followed by excision and curettage of the remaining basal cell carcinomas.
  • Basal cell naevus syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary disease.
  • Basal cell naevus syndrome is generally caused by a mutation in the 'patched homolog' (PTCH)-I gene, located on chromosome 9q22.3.
  • Although the syndrome affects multiple organ systems, the most characteristic of this disorder is the appearance of multiple basal cell carcinomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Early recognition of basal cell naevus syndrome.
  • The basal cell naevus syndrome is an autosomal dominant syndrome characterised by major manifestations such as basal cell carcinomas, jaw cysts, palmar or plantar pits, and intracranial calcifications.
  • Early recognition is important in order to reduce morbidity due to cutaneous and cerebral malignancy and oromaxillofacial deformation and destruction, although diagnosis in infancy is rare.
  • We describe three unrelated children with basal cell naevus syndrome who appeared to be the first patient in each family.
  • CONCLUSION: Our observations lead us to recommend looking for other manifestations of this disease in patients who present with cardiac fibroma, cleft lip/palate, polydactyly or macrocephaly.
  • Bifid, fused or splayed ribs should be considered a major criterion of great help in establishing a diagnosis, particularly in young children.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Multiple odontogenic keratocysts associated with Gorlin-Goltz syndrome.
  • Gorlin-Goltz syndrome or Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder with a predisposition to cancer.
  • Features like basal cell carcinoma, odontogenic keratocysts, calcification of falx cerebri, bifid ribs, pits on palms and soles and hypertelorism are evident.
  • A case of this rare disease seen on a 13 year old female patient is presented here, where multiple odontogenic keratocysts were causing disfigurement of the lower jaw as well as displacement and malocclusion of the lower teeth.

  • The Gorlin-Goltz syndrome is a dominant autosomic disorder characterized by cancerigenic predisposition and multiple development defects, apparently without reproductive compromise.
  • The complex is characterized by four primary symptoms, which include nevoid basal cell epitheliomas malignantly prone, keratocystic jaw, skeletal abnormalities and intracranial calcifications.
  • Apparently, reproductive problems reported had been rarely associated with this syndrome.
  • We present the case of a patient with clinic stigmatae of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, who had a characteristic progress as seen in the literature; he was the fifth product of a 43 year-old female (father was 48 years old); who at birth disclosed right eye microftalmy, bilateral cryptorchidism surgically treated at age of six.
  • At puberty, an odontogenic cyst of the jaw was noted and enucleated.
  • He also showed facial nevi in neck, thorax and abdomen.
  • It is important to take into consideration Gorlin-Goltz stigmatae in cases of hypogonadism in order to recognize a further genetic influence.

  • Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS, basal cell naevus syndrome, Gorlin syndrome) is an autosomal dominant disorder, caused by mutations in the PTCH gene mapped to chromosome 9q22.3.
  • It is characterised by multiple basal cell carcinomas, keratocysts of the jaws, palmar and plantar pits, cerebral ectopic calcification and several skeletal anomalies.
  • Occasionally, patients with NBCCS develop other neoplasms, particularly medulloblastomas and ovarian fibromas, indicating that the PTCH gene is a tumor-suppressor gene.

  • [Title] Genetic and clinicopathologic aspects of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (NBCCS): presentation of two case reports and literature review.
  • Gorlin-Goltz Syndrome (Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome) is a well-known disorder with distinctive symptoms, which are studied since the 1960s.
  • This is an hereditary disease, with autosomal dominant trait, characterised by high penetration and variable expressivity.
  • In particular, the PTCH gene is important both for embryonic structuring and cellular cycle, therefore, its mutation represents a key event for the development of the disease.
  • From a clinical point of view, the syndrome requires a multidisciplinary approach meaning that a successful treatment needs the simultaneous co-operation of different specialists.
  • Thus, a correct treatment entails the following steps: an early detection of the disease, an extended family history and a careful evaluation of symptoms.
  • The aim of this article was to highlight the main pathologic and genetic features of Gorlin-Goltz Syndrome, its outbreak frequency and the main characteristics of the population clusters it is more likely to hit.
  • Furthermore, due to the predisposition of the disease to relapse, a constant clinical follow-up combined with a correct treatment are important.

  • Imaging studies showed a unilocular well-defined lytic mandibular lesion, calcifications of the falx, bifid ribs and fusion anomalies of the ribs.
  • Based on the combination of imaging and clinical findings the diagnosis of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome was made.
  • During three-year follow-up the boy presented with recurrent and multiple odontogenic keratocysts.
  • The occurrence of multiple and recurrent keratocysts at young age, should alert the radiologist to the potential diagnosis of an underlying Gorlin-Goltz syndrome.

  • PURPOSE: In 1960 Gorlin and Goltz defined the nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS, Gorlin-Goltz Syndrome) as a syndrome comprising multiple basal cell carcinoma, odontogenic keratocysts, and skeletal anomalies.
  • NBCCS is an autosomal dominantly inherited disease with an estimated prevalence of 1:150,000 and diagnosis of this syndrome is often an accidental finding of radiological investigations.
  • The purpose of this study was to report the varied radiological and dermatological manifestations of our patients affected with NBCCS and to present this rare syndrome as a differential diagnosis of skeletal anomalies.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 1994 and 2005 the demographic, clinical, radiological and histological data of 8 patients with NBCCS were retrospectively analyzed.
  • Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome was diagnosed in the event of two major or one major and two minor criteria.
  • The major criteria are more than 2 basal cell carcinoma, odontogenic keratocysts, three or more palmar pits, and calcification of the falx cerebri.
  • RESULTS: Between 1994 and 2005 8 patients (3 females and 5 males) with NBCCS were treated in our departments.
  • The average age at the time of diagnosis of NBCCS was 49.9 years.
  • The major criteria with the most frequency were the basal cell carcinoma (6 patients) and the odontogenic keratocysts (5 patients), followed by the calcification of the falx cerebri and palmoplantar pits (4 patients).
  • CONCLUSION: Due to limitations in identification of mutations in the PTCH1 gene, clinical and radiological examination still remains a very important factor in the treatment of patients suffering from NBCCS.
  • The knowledge of the varied skeletal manifestations and constellations is therefore essential and correlates with therapeutic consequences.
  • Often chest, rib, spine, skull, and jaw X-rays show the way.

  • [Title] Methylaminolaevulinate photodynamic therapy in patients with multiple basal cell carcinomas in the setting of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome or after radiotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: The naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is a therapeutic challenge due to the multiplicity of cutaneous tumours.
  • Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is increasingly used as an alternative treatment for superficial and in some countries nodular basal cell carcinomas (BCC).
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the safety and efficiency of PDT in NBCCS.
  • METHODS: We reviewed retrospectively the evolution of 62 lesions from patients with multiple BCC treated with PDT.
  • RESULTS: The initial response rate (85.4%, 53/62) and recurrence rate (7.5%) appeared comparable to literature values in NBCCS and to those reported in the treatment of sporadic BCC.
  • CONCLUSION: PDT is a suitable therapeutic option in the management of NBCCS patients but requires a strict and long follow-up.

  • [Title] Dermatoscopic characteristics of acrochordon-like basal cell carcinomas in Gorlin-Goltz syndrome.
  • BACKGROUND: Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS) is an autosomal-dominant disease characterized by the early onset of multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), among other findings.
  • RESULTS: Some acrochordon-like lesions showed specific dermatoscopic criteria for BCC, including multiple blue-gray globules and arborizing telangiectasia.
  • Other polypoid lesions, especially the smaller ones, exhibited characteristics that suggested BCC, such as isolated blue-gray globules, small blue-gray ovoid nests, and fine elongated telangiectases.
  • CONCLUSION: Dermatoscopy may be a useful diagnostic tool to analyze acrochordon-like lesions in children and to facilitate early diagnosis and treatment of BCCs in patients with GGS.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Ultraviolet responses of Gorlin syndrome primary skin cells.
  • BACKGROUND: Gorlin syndrome, or naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), is an autosomal dominant disorder associated with mutations in the PTCH1 gene, which encodes the receptor of SONIC HEDGEHOG.
  • In addition to developmental abnormalities, patients with NBCCS are prone to basal cell carcinoma (BCC), the most frequent type of nonmelanoma skin cancer in humans.
  • OBJECTIVES: As ultraviolet (UV) exposure plays a prominent role in the development of sporadic BCC, we aimed to determine whether primary NBCCS skin cells exhibit differential responses to UV exposure compared with wild-type (WT) skin cells.
  • METHODS: Primary fibroblast and keratinocyte strains were isolated from nonlesional skin biopsies of 10 patients with characteristic NBCCS traits.
  • After identification of PTCH1 mutations, capacities of NBCCS cells to repair UV-induced DNA lesions and to survive after UV irradiation, as well as p53 responses, were compared with those of WT skin cells.
  • DNA repair and cell survival analyses following UV irradiation revealed no obvious differences between responses of NBCCS and WT fibroblasts and keratinocytes.
  • However, p53 accumulation after UV irradiation was abnormally persistent in all NBCCS primary keratinocyte strains compared with WT keratinocytes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our observations that NBCCS cells harbour normal DNA repair and survival capacities following UV irradiation better explain that BCC proneness of patients with NBCCS does not solely concern body areas exposed to sunlight and suggest rather that it might be due to cell cycle alterations.

  • [Title] Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (Gorlin syndrome).
  • Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), also known as Gorlin syndrome, is a hereditary condition characterized by a wide range of developmental abnormalities and a predisposition to neoplasms.
  • Main clinical manifestations include multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), odontogenic keratocysts of the jaws, hyperkeratosis of palms and soles, skeletal abnormalities, intracranial ectopic calcifications, and facial dysmorphism (macrocephaly, cleft lip/palate and severe eye anomalies).
  • Recurrent jaw cysts occur in 90% of patients.
  • Skeletal abnormalities (affecting the shape of the ribs, vertebral column bones, and the skull) are frequent.
  • About 5-10% of NBCCS patients develop the brain malignancy medulloblastoma, which may be a potential cause of early death.
  • NBCCS is caused by mutations in the PTCH1 gene and is transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait with complete penetrance and variable expressivity.
  • Clinical diagnosis relies on specific criteria.
  • Gene mutation analysis confirms the diagnosis.
  • Antenatal diagnosis is feasible by means of ultrasound scans and analysis of DNA extracted from fetal cells (obtained by amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling).
  • Main differential diagnoses include Bazex syndrome, trichoepithelioma papulosum multiplex and Torre's syndrome (Muir-Torre's syndrome).
  • Keratocysts are treated by surgical removal.
  • Life expectancy in NBCCS is not significantly altered but morbidity from complications can be substantial.
  • Patients with NBCCS should strictly avoid an excessive sun exposure.

  • [Title] Gorlin-goltz syndrome.
  • Multiple jaw cysts are a characteristic manifestation of basal cell nevus (Gorlin) syndrome.
  • Gorlin-Goltz syndrome is characterized by symptoms primarily involving the skin, central nervous system, and skeletal system.
  • In 90% of the patients, nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome is associated with recurring odontogenic keratocysts.
  • This patient showed recurrent jaw and maxillary cysts, for which he was followed for 2 years.

  • [Title] PTCH mutations in sporadic and Gorlin-syndrome-related odontogenic keratocysts.
  • Odontogenic keratocysts are relatively common lesions that may occur in isolation or in association with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (or Gorlin syndrome).
  • The PTCH gene has been reported to be associated with Gorlin syndrome.
  • We investigated 10 cases of non-syndromic keratocysts and two other cases associated with Gorlin syndrome, looking for PTCH mutations.
  • Of the 5 mutations identified, 2 were germ-line mutations (2619C>A; 1338_1339insGCG) in 2 cysts associated with Gorlin syndrome, and 3 were somatic mutations (3124_3129dupGTGTGC; 1361_1364delGTCT; 3913G>T) in 3 non-syndromic cysts.
  • This report describes PTCH mutations in both non-syndromic and Gorlin-syndrome-related odontogenic keratocysts in Chinese patients, and suggests that defects of PTCH are associated with the pathogenesis of syndromic as well as a subset of non-syndromic keratocysts.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Nonsense-associated altered splicing of the Patched gene fails to suppress carcinogenesis in Gorlin syndrome.
  • Mutations in the gene coding for the transmembrane receptor protein Patched (PTCH) are implicated in the autosomal dominant disorder Gorlin syndrome (also known as naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome), characterized by congenital abnormalities and cancer predisposition.
  • We describe a patient with Gorlin syndrome who had three molecular aberrations resulting in biallelic disruption of the PTCH gene, leading to abnormal protein expression and development of basal cell carcinoma.

  • [Title] MMP-13 expression in keratocyst odontogenic tumour associated with NBCCS and sporadic keratocysts.
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-13 expression in associated and non-nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) Odontogenic Keratocysts (OCKs) in order to contribute to a better understanding of the differences in the growth pattern between them.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-nine paraffin-embedded blocks of OCKs, 26 sporadic OCKs and 11 NBCCS-associated KCOTs were studied by immunohistochemistry to evaluate MMP-13 expression both in epithelial and stromal layers.
  • Moreover, syndromic cysts displayed a more intense and diffuse MMP-13 labelling of the stromal tissue.
  • Fisher's exact test showed a statistically significant greater prevalence of KCOTs-immunolabelled cysts with respect to sporadic OCKs.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results from this study point out that the biological behaviour of these cysts could be related not only to the epithelial layer but also to stromal tissue in that... MMP-13 overexpression in stromal tissue of NBCCS-associated KCOTs could clarify the higher aggressiveness of these cysts.

  • [Title] Multifocal desmoplastic medulloblastoma in an african-american child with nevoid basal cell carcinoma (gorlin) syndrome. Case report.
  • The authors present the case of a 2.5-year-old African-American boy with desmoplastic medulloblastoma (MB) and nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), also known as Gorlin syndrome, an autosomal dominant disorder resulting from mutations in the patched (PTCH) gene that predisposes to neoplasias (including basal cell carcinomas [BCCs] and MB) and to widespread congenital malformations.
  • The diagnosis of NBCCS was suspected based on the clinical examination, patient and family medical histories, and histopathological characteristics of the tumor.
  • The diagnosis of NBCCS was confirmed by DNA testing, which revealed a novel mutation in the PTCH gene.
  • This is the first report of an African-American child with MB diagnosed with NBCCS prior to radiotherapy.
  • Although only a small number of patients with MB have NBCCS, the diagnosis must be considered because radiotherapy in such patients can lead to the formation of BCCs and other intracranial neoplasms within the irradiated field.
  • This case emphasizes the importance of obtaining thorough family and patient medical histories and of carefully examining the patient and close relatives for signs of NBCCS to avoid the potentially devastating consequences of missing this diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] PTCH1 +/- dermal fibroblasts isolated from healthy skin of Gorlin syndrome patients exhibit features of carcinoma associated fibroblasts.
  • Gorlin's or nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) causes predisposition to basal cell carcinoma (BCC), the commonest cancer in adult human.
  • Mutations in the tumor suppressor gene PTCH1 are responsible for this autosomal dominant syndrome.
  • In NBCCS patients, as in the general population, ultraviolet exposure is a major risk factor for BCC development.
  • However these patients also develop BCCs in sun-protected areas of the skin, suggesting the existence of other mechanisms for BCC predisposition in NBCCS patients.
  • As increasing evidence supports the idea that the stroma influences carcinoma development, we hypothesized that NBCCS fibroblasts could facilitate BCC occurence of the patients.
  • WT (n = 3) and NBCCS fibroblasts bearing either nonsense (n = 3) or missense (n = 3) PTCH1 mutations were cultured in dermal equivalents made of a collagen matrix and their transcriptomes were compared by whole genome microarray analyses.
  • Strikingly, NBCCS fibroblasts over-expressed mRNAs encoding pro-tumoral factors such as Matrix Metalloproteinases 1 and 3 and tenascin C.
  • They also over-expressed mRNA of pro-proliferative diffusible factors such as fibroblast growth factor 7 and the stromal cell-derived factor 1 alpha, known for its expression in carcinoma associated fibroblasts.
  • These data indicate that the PTCH1(+/-) genotype of healthy NBCCS fibroblasts results in phenotypic traits highly reminiscent of those of BCC associated fibroblasts, a clue to the yet mysterious proneness to non photo-exposed BCCs in NBCCS patients.

  • [Title] Basal cell nevus syndrome: clinical and genetic diagnosis.
  • INTRODUCTION: Basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS), also known as Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, comprises five main pathological features: nevoid basal cell carcinomas, keratocystic odontogenic tumors, congenital skeletal anomalies, calcification of the falx cerebri, and point skin depressions on the palms and/or soles.
  • The disease exhibits a dominant autosomal hereditary trait, with implication of the human homologue of the Drosophila segment polarity Patched (PTCH) gene.
  • BCNS is diagnosed on the basis of clinical and radiological criteria and can be confirmed by genetic study.
  • METHODS: The present study reports two cases of BCNS with the presence of maxillo-mandibular keratocystic odontogenic tumors.
  • RESULTS: One case was diagnosed according to clinical criteria, while the other required genetic confirmation that revealed a germ line mutation in exon 17 (c.2868delC), not previously described in the databases, which was considered to be responsible for the disease.

  • [Title] Further delineation of 9q22 deletion syndrome associated with basal cell nevus (Gorlin) syndrome: report of two cases and review of the literature.
  • Basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS; Gorlin syndrome) is an autosomal dominant disorder, characterized by a predisposition to neoplasms and developmental abnormalities.
  • BCNS is caused by mutations in the human homolog of the Drosophila patched gene-1, PTCH1, which is mapped on chromosome 9q22.3.
  • Nonsense, frameshift, in-frame deletions, splice-site, and missense mutations have been found in the syndrome.
  • Haploinsufficiency of PTCH1, which is caused by interstitial deletion of 9q22.3, is also responsible for the syndrome.
  • We describe two unrelated patients with some typical features of BCNS associated with deletion of 9q21.33-q31.1 and determined the boundary of the deletion by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) clones.
  • Although the size and breakpoints were different from those of previously reported cases, the clinical features are common to patients with 9q22 deletion associated with BCNS.
  • Delineation of the 9q22 deletions and further consideration of the genes responsible for the characteristic manifestations may provide insight into this newly recognized deletion syndrome.

  • [Title] A missense mutation in PTCH2 underlies dominantly inherited NBCCS in a Chinese family.
  • BACKGROUND: Naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is a pleiotropic, autosomal dominant disease.
  • Growing evidence suggests that the disorder may result from mutations in genes of the Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signalling pathway.
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the pathogenic gene in a Chinese Han family with NBCCS.
  • A GLI1 reporter gene and a cell growth curve were used to examine functional consequences of the detected mutant.
  • RESULTS: One novel mutation, a G-->A transition (2157G-->A) in exon 15 of the PTCH2 gene, was identified in this family with NBCCS by direct sequencing and digestion with the AvaI restriction enzyme.
  • In contrast to wild type PTCH2, PTCH2-R719Q could not inhibit cell proliferation.
  • CONCLUSION: PTCH2 (2157G-->A), a novel missense mutation, underlies NBCCS, resulting in the loss of PTCH2 inhibitory function in the Shh signalling pathway.

  • [Title] Down-regulation of SMT3A gene expression in association with DNA synthesis induction after X-ray irradiation in nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) cells.
  • Fibroblast cells derived from nevoid basal carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) patients show increased levels of DNA synthesis after X-ray irradiation.
  • Genes, whose expression is modulated in association with the DNA synthesis induction, were searched by using PCR-based mRNA differential display analysis in one of the NBCCS cell lines, NBCCS1 cells.
  • This decrease was also shown by RT-PCR analysis in another cell line, NBCCS3 cells.
  • In addition to NBCCS cells, normal fibroblast cells showed the DNA synthesis induction after X-ray irradiation when they were treated with antisense oligonucleotides (AO) for SMT3A.
  • Thus, down-regulation of SMT3A gene expression may be involved in the DNA synthesis induction after X-ray irradiation in the NBCCS cells at least tested.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Impaired removal of 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine induced by UVB radiation in naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome cells.
  • BACKGROUND: The naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by tumorigenesis such as multiple basal cell carcinomas, odontogenic keratocysts and developmental abnormalities such as calcified dural folds and rib-anomalies.
  • OBJECTIVES: To Investigate the role of UV in development of BCCs in NBCCS, cellular sensitivity to killing by UVB and removal of UVB-induced oxidative DNA damage were examined using fibroblasts derived from patients with NBCCS under physiologically relevant doses of UVB exposure.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Three patients with NBCCS, a 59-year-old male patient, an 18-year-old boy and a 13-year-old boy were examined by photobiological analysis.
  • RESULTS: All three cell strains derived from the patients with NBCCS were hypersensitive to killing by UVB (D10: 50-70% of normal) but not by UVC.
  • After UVB exposure, the production of 8-OHdG increased dose dependently up to 3200 J m-2 in both NBCCS cells and normal cells.
  • In normal cells, 8-OHdG after UVB exposure returned to its basal level during 24 h, whereas in NBCCS cells the amount of 8-OHdG after 800 J m-2 of UVB exposure did not return to its basal level even after 24 h.
  • The result indicates the removal of 8-OHdG could be impaired in NBCCS cells.
  • Ability in removal of thymine dimers of NBCCS cells was similar to that of normal cells.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hypersensitivity to UVB can be one of the diagnostic tools of NBCCS for those whose clinical features have not yet completed.
  • Hypersensitivity to cell killing and the impairment of removal of 8-OHdG after UVB exposure may play some role in developing BCCs and other tumours in NBCCS.

  • CASE REPORT: The authors describe the clinical presentation of two children with Gorlin-Goltz syndrome without affected first degree relatives.
  • In both the clinical suspicion of the syndrome is raised by the presence of multiple odontogenic cysts surgically removed.
  • Histopathological exam revealed keratocysts.
  • None of the patients has basal cell carcinomas but both present with skeletal anomalies, namely marked pectus deformity.
  • DISCUSSION/CONCLUSION: The absence of major diagnostic criteria like basal cell carcinomas or palmar or plantar pits in young patients delay the early diagnosis and the correct screening for medulloblastoma, basal cell carcinomas and cardiac fibromas.
  • Odontogenic keratocysts are the most consistent clinical finding in Gorlin-Goltz syndrome in the first one or two decades of life.
  • These patients are very sensitive to ionizing radiation, being able to develop basal cell carcinomas and meningiomas.
  • Treatment should accomplish the complete resection of the tumors.

  • BACKGROUND: The naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) is an autosomal dominant multisystem disorder with variable expression.
  • NBCCS patients have variable susceptibility to development of basal cell carcinoma (BCC).
  • Previous studies have shown that polymorphisms of some metabolic genes encoding the cytochrome p450 (CYP) and glutathione-S-transferase (GST) enzymes influenced the numbers of BCCs in sporadic BCC cases.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine whether allelic variants of these genes contribute to the variation in numbers of BCCs observed in NBCCS families.
  • METHODS: Genotyping and analysis was carried out in 152 members (69 affected and 83 unaffected) of 13 families with NBCCS for seven polymorphisms in five metabolic genes including CYP1A1, CYP2D6, GSTM1, GSTP1, and GSTT1.
  • RESULTS: GSTP1 Val105 and GSTP1 Val114 alleles were significantly associated with fewer BCC numbers (odds ratio (OR)105 = 0.55 (95% confidence interval, 0.35 to 0.88); OR114 = 0.20 (0.05 to 0.88)).
  • In addition, fewer jaw cysts were observed in carriers of the three p450 polymorphisms (CYP1A1m1, CYP1A1m2, and CYP2D6*4) (OR(CYP1A1m1) = 0.27 (0.12 to 0.58); OR(CYP1A1m2) = 0.25 (0.08 to 0.78); OR(CYP2D6*4) = 0.33 (0.18 to 0.60)).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Genetic variants might contribute to the variation in numbers of BCCs and jaw cysts observed in NBCCS families.

  • Gorlin-Goltz syndrome is a genetically predisposed disease characterised by multiple basal cell carcinomas, odontogenic keratocysts and ectopic calcifications.
  • Because of the recurrence of a large basal cell carcinoma after multiple operations and a total dose telecobalt irradiation of 66 Gy, the patient's nose was ablated, with resection of the upper lip and part of the maxilla.
  • The patient tolerated the procedures well and is completely disease-free 12 months after the surgery.
  • Besides presenting a rare and complicated case of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, the main purpose of this report is to show that, if different specialists in a dental-clinical team (maxillofacial surgeon, oncologist, radiation oncologist, prosthodontist and psychiatrist) combine their skills and expertise, successful management is possible even in a challenging complex case.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Gorlin-Goltz syndrome: incidental finding on routine ct scan following car accident.
  • INTRODUCTION: Gorlin-Goltz syndrome is a rare hereditary disease.
  • Pathogenesis of the syndrome is attributed to abnormalities in the long arm of chromosome 9 (q22.3-q31) and loss or mutations of human patched gene (PTCH1 gene).
  • Multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), odontogenic keratocysts, skeletal abnormalities, hyperkeratosis of palms and soles, intracranial ectopic calcifications of the falx cerebri and facial dysmorphism are considered the main clinical features.
  • Diagnosis is based upon established major and minor clinical and radiological criteria and ideally confirmed by DNA analysis.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a 19 year-old female who was involved in a car accident and found to present imaging findings of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome during a routine whole body computed tomography (CT) scan in order to exclude traumatic injuries.
  • CONCLUSION: Radiologic findings of the syndrome are easily identifiable on CT scans and may prompt to early verification of the disease, which is very important for regular follow-up and better survival rates from the co-existent diseases.

  • Hereditary paraganglioma, Gorlin-Goltz syndrome and Fanconi anemia are among the rare hereditary tumor syndromes of the head and neck.
  • Patients with hereditary paraganglioma often develop multiple tumors of the glomus caroticum and glomus jugulotympanicum.
  • The corresponding genetic defects of the mitochondrial succinate dehydrogenase complex induce autonomous tumor cell growth.
  • In patients with Gorlin-Goltz syndrome basal cell carcinomas and keratocystic odontogenic tumors usually occur much earlier than in patients with sporadic tumors.
  • The associated germline mutations are located in the patched gene which is a modulator of the cell cycle.
  • Fanconi anemia represents a chromosomal instability syndrome which is characterized by early onset of pancytopenia, i.e. bone marrow failure and subsequent development of acute myeloid leukemia and/or squamous cell carcinomas, especially of the head and neck.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Activation of sonic hedgehog signaling in keratocystic odontogenic tumors].
  • BACKGROUND: Keratocystic odontogenic tumors are benign neoplasms of the viscerocranium that occur sporadically as well as in association with Gorlin-Goltz syndrome.
  • Multiple basal cell carcinomas of the skin are another typical feature of Gorlin-Goltz syndrome.
  • Aberrant activation of sonic hedgehog signaling has been reported for sporadic and hereditary basal cell carcinoma caused by specific genetic mutations, but for keratocystic odontogenic tumors, the role of aberrant sonic hedgehog signaling has not yet been evaluated in detail.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: In the present study, 131 keratocystic odontogenic tumors were analyzed by immunohistochemistry for the expression of sonic hedgehog signaling proteins SHH, PTCH1, SMO, GLI1, and NMYC on tissue microarray sections.
  • RESULTS: High expression of the analyzed proteins-between 67.3% (PTCH1) and 92.9% (SHH)-was found in the epithelial compartment of the keratocystic odontogenic tumors analyzed.
  • In the stromal compartment of the tumors, high expression of the target proteins was found significantly less frequently (all p-values <0.001).
  • CONCLUSION: Aberrant sonic hedgehog signaling is critically involved in the molecular pathogenesis of keratocystic odontogenic tumors.
  • This finding underlines the neoplastic character of this intraosseous lesion.
  • Because of high recurrence rates after local excision, more radical surgical approaches are recommended for treating keratocystic odontogenic tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Clinical manifestations in 25 Japanese patients with Gorlin syndrome].
  • We investigated the clinical manifestations of 25 Japanese patients with Gorlin syndrome.
  • We revealed the frequencies of major five symptoms in Japanese Gorlin syndrome patients, i.e., basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) (20%), jaw cysts (80%), palmar and plantar pits (64%), calcification of the falx cerebri (64%), and rib abnormalities (44%).
  • Compared with the previous studies in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, Japanese Gorlin syndrome patients showed a significantly lower rate of BCCs, and no medulloblastomas in this study.
  • We conclude that clinical manifestations other than major symptoms are quite variable, and racial differences may influence the occurrence of BCCs in Gorlin syndrome patients.

  • [Title] New mutation of the patched homologue 1 gene in a Chinese family with naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome.
  • Naevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), also known as Gorlin syndrome, is inherited in an autosomal dominant mode characterised by a combination of developmental anomalies and a predisposition to form tumours.
  • Our aim was to search for patched homologue 1 (PTHC1) mutations in a Chinese family with NBCCS.
  • Our findings suggest that the 3146A-->T mutation in the PTCH gene may be the cause of NBCCS by affecting the conformation and function of the PTCH protein.

  • [Title] Multiple dentigerous cysts in a nonsyndromic minor patient: Report of an unusual case.
  • A dentigerous cyst is an odontogenic cyst, thought to be of developmental origin.
  • Most dentigerous cysts are solitary.
  • Multiple/bilateral cysts are usually found in association with a number of syndromes including cleidocranial dysplasia, Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome and Gorlin--Goltz syndrome (multiple OKCs).
  • In the absence of these syndromes, the occurrence of multiple dentigerous cysts is rare.
  • Here, we report the unusual occurrence of non-syndromic multiple dentigerous cysts.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Gorlin-Goltz syndrome: clinicopathologic aspects.
  • Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, also known as nevoid basal cell carcicoma syndrome, comes into being due to a genetic alteration produced by a mutation in the "Patched" tumour suppressor gene, and it is inherited in a dominant autosomal way, though sporadic cases have been found.
  • This syndrome shows a high penetrance and variable expressiveness.
  • It is about a multisystemic process that is characterised by the presence of multiple pigmented basocellular carcinomas, keratocysts in the jaws, palmar and/or plantar pits and calcification of the falxcerebri.
  • The latter include numerous skeletical, dermatology related and neurological anomalies among others.
  • In some occasions, the presence of very aggressive basocellular carcinomas has been described as well as other malignant neoplasias.
  • Due to the importance of oral maxillofacial manifestations of this syndrome, it is fundamental to know its characteristic in order to make a diagnosis, an early preventive treatment and establish right genetic advice.
  • In this work the main clinicopathologic and the therapeutic aspects related to the syndrome under consideration have been revised and updated.

  • [Title] Basal cell nevus syndrome. Presentation of six cases and literature review.
  • Basal cell nevus syndrome, also known as Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, is an autosomal dominant inherited disorder which is characterised by the presence of multiple maxillary keratocysts and facial basal cell carcinomas, along with other less frequent clinical characteristics such us musculo-skeletal disturbances (costal and vertebrae malformations), characteristic facies, neurological (calcification of the cerebral falx, schizophrenia, learning difficulties), skin (cysts, lipomas, fibromas), sight, hormonal, etc.
  • On occasions it can be associated with aggressive basal cell carcinomas and malignant neoplasias, for which early diagnosis and treatment is essential, as well as family detection and genetic counselling.
  • Currently there are new lines of investigation based on biomolecular studies, which aim at identifying the molecules responsible for these cysts and thus allowing an early diagnosis of these patients.
  • In this paper a review of the literature, and six cases of patients affected by multi-systemic and varied clinical expression of basal cell nevus syndrome, are presented.

  • A hitherto unknown combination of multiple bifid ribs, as seen in Gorlin syndrome (GS), interpedicular fusion and apparent malsegmentation of vertebral laminae at various upper thoracic levels was found in the skeleton of a newborn infant.
  • This specific combination of anomalies is also seen in the mouse open brain (opb) mutant.
  • Since the genes involved in GS (Patched2) and opb (rab23) both play an essential role in the hedgehog signaling pathway, it is likely that the cause of the anomalies presented here is to be sought in impaired functioning of this pathway.

  • [Title] Gorlin syndrome patient with large deletion in 9q22.32-q22.33 detected by quantitative multiplex fluorescent PCR.
  • BACKGROUND: Gorlin syndrome is a rare autosomal-dominant disorder characterized by a wide range of developmental abnormalities and various tumors.
  • The syndrome is caused by mutations in PTCH1, a tumor suppressor gene located at 9q22.32.
  • We describe a Gorlin syndrome case with typical features of the syndrome and no mutations in PTCH1, but with a large deletion of the 9q22 region that has rarely been described.
  • CONCLUSION: We suggest that screening for large deletions should be included in standard mutation screening for Gorlin syndrome patients.

  • [Title] Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome in infants: improving diagnosis.
  • BACKGROUND: Diagnosis of Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome (NBCCS) in infants may pose significant challenges to clinicians owing to its variable expressivity and age-related manifestations.
  • METHODS: We report two paediatric cases of NBCCS who presented initially with a non-specific phenotype.
  • RESULTS: In case 1, a diagnosis of NBCCS was possible only after the father was interviewed and found to present with two major criteria for the disease.
  • Subsequent molecular testing confirmed the diagnosis.
  • In case 2, molecular testing of the infant and his father had diagnostic value as neither satisfied fully the current diagnostic criteria for NBCCS.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Presence of the few clinical manifestations of NBCCS that appear in infants, typically congenital malformations and skeletal abnormalities, should prompt clinicians to conduct in-person interviews with both parents.

  • [Title] [The role of diagnostic neuropathology in familial tumour syndromes].
  • Inherited cancer syndromes often involve the central and peripheral nervous system.
  • For the surgical neuropathologist the possibility in individual patients of a familial tumour syndrome needs to be considered in the case of special tumours such as malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour (MPNST), medulloblastoma with extensive nodularity (MBEN) or even atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumour (AT/RT) of the brain.
  • Furthermore, tumour location and patient age may point to a familial tumour syndrome as in the case of neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) with typical bilateral vestibular schwannoma in young age.
  • This short review discusses some of the diagnostic aspects in this field relating to neurofibromatosis type 1 and 2 (NF1, NF2), as well as the two rare tumors MBEN in Gorlin-Goltz syndrome and AT/RT in particular.

  • [Title] Multiple skin cysts in nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome: a case report and review of the literature.
  • We report a 72-year-old man with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) who presented with 25 skin cysts on his trunk and extremities.
  • Fourteen of 25 skin cysts (56%) were observed on his hands.
  • Histological examination demonstrated that most of the excised cysts had an epithelial wall with typical epidermal keratinization.
  • However, 4 skin cysts (4/16; 25%) showed a corrugated or festooned inner surface of wall without a granular cell layer, which resembled an odontogenic keratocyst, a characteristic feature of skin cysts in NBCCS.
  • A review of the literature suggested that acral localization of skin cysts is a distinctive feature of NBCCS.
  • In addition, the histological findings of skin cysts resembling an odontogenic keratocyst might be a hallmark of NBCCS.

  • A 27-year-old man with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS, Gorlin syndrome) who had undergone craniospinal irradiation for a childhood brain stem medulloblastoma complained of progressive binocular visual loss.
  • Brain MRI demonstrated mass effect from multiple large meningiomas.
  • This is the sixth reported patient with NBCCS, medulloblastoma, and craniospinal radiation who has developed intracranial meningioma, further documenting the fact that such patients have a relatively high likelihood of developing meningiomas, especially multiple meningiomas.
  • Because patients with NBCCS are often mentally impaired and because papilledema can progress silently before causing irreversible visual loss, periodic ophthalmologic examination is advisable after craniospinal radiation.

  • [Title] Germline mutations of the PTCH gene in families with odontogenic keratocysts and nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome.
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: Odontogenic keratocysts (OKC) are aggressive lesions in the jaws, which can occur as isolated cases or in association with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS).
  • Mutations on PTCH gene have been identified in patients with NBCCS.
  • This study aims to investigate germline mutations of PTCH in families with OKC and NBCCS.
  • METHODS: Three Chinese families with OKC and NBCCS were enrolled in the study.
  • The diagnosis was based on examination and medical history.
  • RESULTS: One family with isolated OKC (family 1) and the other two families with NBCCS were diagnosed.
  • Three novel germline mutations in PTCH were identified, including a missense mutation (p.S1089 > P) in family 1, a nonsense mutation (p.Q160X) in family 2 and a de novo mutation (c.768_777delGACAAACTTC) in family 3.
  • The results suggest that germline mutations on PTCH can cause isolated OKC, and that the PTCH gene responsible for NBCCS plays an important role in the formation of OKCs even when they are not syndrome-related.

  • OBJECTIVES: This retrospective study reviews the occurrence of keratocystic odontogenic tumours (KOTs) in nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) patients seen in the Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology Special Procedures Clinic in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto.
  • METHODS: This study examines the number and radiographic features of KOTs identified in 11 NBCCS patients who presented with 43 KOTs between January 1989 and 30 June 2007 on plain film radiographs and CT.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that there should be early and frequent monitoring of NBCCS patients for the development of KOTs in youth and adolescence, and that CT imaging should play an important role in these investigations.

  • [Title] Atlanto-occipital ligament calcification: a novel sign in nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome.
  • BACKGROUND: The nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), first described by Gorlin and Goltz in 1960, is a hereditary autosomal dominant disease with high penetrance and variable expressivity.
  • Almost 70% of patients with NBCCS have some degree of craniofacial anomaly.
  • Therefore this investigation was carried out to determine the prevalence of atlanto-occipital ligament calcification on lateral x-ray of NBCCS patients aiming to assess the effectiveness of this sign in NBCCS diagnosis.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Lateral and frontal cephalometric radiographs of 18 patients (11 males and 7 females), aged 8-61 years, with the diagnosis of NBCCS were evaluated for the presence of intracranial calcifications (diaphragma sellae and falx cerebri) and or calcification of the atlanto-occipital ligament.
  • CONCLUSION: The calcification of the atlanto-occipital ligament should be considered in addition to the other major criteria for NBCCS diagnosis.

  • [Title] Mechanisms of inactivation of PTCH1 gene in nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome: modification of the two-hit hypothesis.
  • PURPOSE: PTCH1 has been identified as the gene responsible for nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS).
  • Keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOT) are aggressive jaw lesions that may occur in isolation or in association with NBCCS.
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the genetic and/or epigenetic mechanisms of inactivation of the PTCH1 gene in patients with NBCCS and related sporadic KCOTs.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Loss of heterozygosity was analyzed in 44 patients (15 NBCCS-related and 29 sporadic KCOTs), all of whom were previously analyzed for PTCH1 mutations.
  • Allelic location was established in tumors carrying two coincident mutations.
  • The distribution of two-hit, one-hit, and non-hit cases was significantly different between syndrome and nonsyndrome patients (P < 0.02).
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study indicates that PTCH1 gene alternation may play a significant role in the pathogenesis of NBCCS and the related sporadic tumors.

  • [Title] DHPLC analysis of patients with Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome reveals novel PTCH missense mutations in the sterol-sensing domain.
  • Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome (NBCCS) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterised by multiple basal cell carcinomas, palmar and plantar pitting, odontogenic keratocysts of the jaws and bilamellar calcification of the falx.
  • Mutations in the PTCH gene are responsible for NBCCS but most studies have found mutations in less than half of the cases tested.
  • We used denaturing high performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC) to screen for PTCH mutations in 28 NBCCS cases, most of whom had been previously evaluated by single stranded conformation polymorphism analysis but found to be negative.
  • The mutation frequency was similar in inherited and de novo cases.
