In February 2020, Dr. Fathi was invited to speak at the Mayo Clinic to discuss treatment options for a rare condition called Gorlin Syndrome on behalf of the Gorlin Syndrome Alliance. Gorlin syndrome, also known as nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, basal cell carcinoma nevus syndrome, Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, or basal cell nevus syndrome, is a rare genetic disorder. Gorlin syndrome can affect every organ system of the human body. People with Gorlin syndrome are at increased risk of developing basal cell carcinoma (BCC) skin cancers and non-cancerous tumors. Basal cell carcinomas are the most common manifestation of Gorlin syndrome. Considered a rare disease, there are approximately 11,000 people in the US living with Gorlin syndrome. It affects males and females equally. It is caused by a mutation of one of the two genes that suppress the development of tumors in the body.
