Goldenhar Syndrome   also called as oculo-auriculo-vertebral dysplasia,is a rare syndrome developing from first and second pharyngeal arches during Blastogenesis.This condition was documented in 1952 by Maurice Goldenharr.The syndrome is charecterised by multiple anomalies of  the ocular,auricular,cardiac,skeletal and nervous system.Pericentric inversion of chromosome 9 is one of the most common structural balanced chromosomal  aberration  seen in this syndrome.Multi disciplinary approach should be undertaken by several departments in evaluating such patients
KEY WORDS: Epibulbar dermoid, Micrognathia,Preauricular tags.
