Find duplicate files but with different extensions

Hi !

I wonder if anyone can help on this : I have a directory:
Code:
/xyz

that has the following files:
Code:
chsLog.107.20130603.gz
chsLog.115.20130603
chsLog.111.20130603.gz
chsLog.107.20130603
chsLog.115.20130603.gz

As you ca see there are two files that are the same but only with a minor difference which is
Code:
gz

extension.
How can I find those files? I have tryied the
Code:
find

command, but is not very helpfull
# 2  
find . -name *.gz
# 3  
Find duplicate files but with different extensions

That will only find
Code:
gz

extension filenames

Find duplicate files but with different extensions
