Show Summary Details

Preview

Goldenhar's syndrome is characterized by a combination of dermal epibulbar cysts, auricular appendices, malformation of ears, and vertebral anomalies. The average incidence ratio of Goldenhar's syndrome is estimated to be 1/5600, and the frequency of cardiovascular malformations of this syndrome is 5–58 per cent. Although the etiology of this disease is not fully understood, autosomal recessive or dominant inheritance is possible. The disease occurs as sporadic cases. Male:female ratio for the Goldenhar's syndrome is 2:1. A 72-day-old Goldenhar's syndrome case is reported who presented with multiple congenital anomalies.
