 en Goldenhar Syndrome in an Infant of Diabetic Mother
Gharehbaghi, Manizheh Mostafa & Ghaemi, Mir-Reza


Background: Goldenhar syndrome (oculoauriculovertebral dysplasia) is a rare congenital anomaly with unknown etiology and consists of non accidental association of hemifacial microsomia, auricular anomalies, epibulbar dermoid and vertebral anomalies. Although some malformations are more frequent in infants of diabetic mothers, developmental defects of first and second branchial arch is not a common finding in these patients.
Case Presentation: We report a female case of Goldenhar syndrome in a newborn infant of a diabetic mother (IDM). Follow up of this patient after 6 months showed normal neurodevelopment and no evidence of hearing loss. She had developed epibulbar dermoid tumor in her right eye.
Conclusion: It is necessary to evaluate IDM for presence of anomalies implying oculoauriculo-vertebral dysplasia.
