A case of nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome is presented and its varied clinical manifestations and multi-system involvement are emphasised. Our case presented with an early onset of symptoms but sought medical help later on for progressively increasing jaw swelling and pain. On further evaluation, multiple pigmented skin papules, palmar pits, multiple jaw cysts, skull bone osteoporosis, bifid ribs and kyphosis were present. Systemic involvement was minimal. There was no significant family history.
