Goldenhar syndrome is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder in which there is abnormal prenatal development of the head and face leading to subsequent asymmetry of craniofacial structures. Most often, those affected will have very small and asymmetric ears and mouth with hypoplasia of the mandible and can also have missing ears and malformations of the eyes, vertebrae and palate. A case report of an adolescent with Goldenhar Syndrome that was seen is presented along with a brief review of the disorder in order to enlighten Podiatric physicians of this rare syndrome.
