Abstract
Goldenhar syndrome (oculo-auriculo-vertebral dysplasia, OAVS) is a rare, congenital disease with an incidence of 1:3500 and 1:5600. It occurs due to abnormal development of the first and second branchial arches. It has a multifactorial etiopathogenesis. The typical features of Goldenhar syndrome include ocular anomalies - epibulbar dermoids, microphthalmia and coloboma, auricular features such as preauricular tags, hearing loss, micrognathia, and vertebral anomalies such as scoliosis or hemivertebrae.
