Goldenhar Syndrome

Goldenhar syndrome is a rare congenital condition characterized by abnormal development of the eye, ear and spine. Children with Goldenhar syndrome are born with partially formed or totally absent ears, benign growths of the eye, and spinal deformities such as scoliosis. Goldenhar is also known as oculo-auriculo-vertebral spectrum or OAV, and affects one in every 3,000-5,000 births.
