Goldenhar Syndrome is a congenital birth defect which involves deformities of the face. It usually affects one side of the face only. Some of the characteristics of Goldenhar Syndrome includes a partially formed or totally absent ear (microtia), benign growths of the eye, a missing eye, one corner of the mouth may be higher than the other, or the chin may be closer to the affected ear.
Currently, the NEI does not have a fact sheet on this condition.
