Basal-cell naevus syndrome is characterized by multiple odontogenic keratoeysts as well as skeletal, ophthalmologic and neurologic features. It is important that the dental practitioner be aware of this syndrome as it has important ramifications for the developing dentition. A case of Basal-cell naevus syndrome is presented along with a review of the literature regarding the management of this disorder. An argument for conservative surgical management of this syndrome is made.
