Concordance for Goldenhar anomaly has been described in monozygotic (MZ) twins on 2 occasions but never in dizygotic (DZ) twins. In both cases the twins were similarly, although not identically, affected. We report on a pair of probably monozygotic twins (8% probability of DZ) who presented with extremely diverse manifestations of this anomaly complex. One of them required a tracheostomy because of obstructive apnea due to severe micrognathia and subsequently died. This twin had a midline lower lip cleft which has not previously been described in the Goldenhar anomaly.
