Goldenhar’s Syndrome (GS) is a rare condition described initially by Von Arlt. It is characterized by a combination of anomalies: epibulbar tumors, preauricular tags and malformation of the ears. In 1963, Gorlin suggested the name oculo-auriculo-vertebral (OAV) dysplasia for this condition and also included vertebral anomalies as signs of the syndrome. The malformations are said to arise from the first and second branchial arches. This work reports a case of GS in 11-years-old boy with the clinical signs of pseudo macrostomia, preauricular tags and epibulbar tumours.

Keywords: Epibulbar Tumours, Goldenhar Syndrome, Preauricular Tags, Macrostomia.
