Abstract

This study presents a report on a 14-year-old male with Goldenhar syndrome featuring bilateral epibulbar mass, right hemifacial microsomia, deafness, and right scoliozis. Cardiac disorders including systolic murmur, sinusoidal arrhythmia, and prolapse of mitral valve were detected in the case. Goldenhar syndrome needs to a multidisciplinary approach regarding craniofacial and cardiologic associations. Ophthalmologists should focus on visual sequels and amblyopia.
