The ­authors ­report the ­case of a 26-year-old ­female ­patient affect­ed by Lhermitte Duclos dis­ease and Cowden dis­ease. Preoperative MRI ­allowed a cor­rect diag­no­sis ­which was con­firmed by path­o­log­i­cal exam­ina­tion. The ­authors ­stress the pos­sibil­ity ­that Lhermitte Duclos and Cowden dis­ease be a sin­gle phako­mat­o­sis; for ­this rea­son all the ­patients affect­ed by Lhermitte-Duclos ­should be ­screened for the pres­ence of mul­ti­ple hamar­to­mas or malig­nant neo­plas­tic ­lesions typ­i­cal of Cowden dis­ease.
