Goldenhar syndrome is a rare condition described by Goldenhar in 1952. It is characterized by a combination of anomalies: dermal epibulbar cysts, auricular appendices, malformation of the ears, hypoplasia of malar bones, mandible and zygomatic arch. The etiology of this rare disease is not fully understood, as it has shown itself variable genetically and of unclear causes. In this report we present a case of Goldenhar syndrome in a 4-year-old boy, who presented all classical signs of this rare condition.
