Goldenhar syndrome (GS) also known as oculoauriculovertebral dysplasia is a relatively common developmental disorder characterized by craniofacial anomalies in association with ocular, auricular, vertebral, cardiac, renal, central nervous system and maxillofacial defects. This condition was ﬁrst described in 1952 by the Swiss ophthalmologist, Maurice Goldenhar. The incidence of this condition varies from 1 in 3,500 to 1 in 5,600 live births. Goldenhar syndrome needs to a multidisciplinary approach regarding craniofacial and cardiologic associations. We are presenting a case of 19 yr old male who was diagnosed with Goldenhar syndrome.
