Goldenhar syndrome is a rare, presumably inherited condition that has a multifactorial etiopathology that results in disturbances of blastogenesis. The syndrome is characterized by the presence of dermal epibulbar tumors, periauricular appendices, malformed ears, and vertebral anomalies, with occasional occurrence of cardiac, visceral, or central nervous system anomalies. This report describes a case of Goldenhar syndrome in a newborn who presented with all of the classic signs of Goldenhar syndrome associated with the rare occurrence of infectious keratitis and hydrocephalus.
