Oculo-auriculovertebral spectrum (OAVS) or the Goldenhar syndrome is a rare developmental disorder with plethora of congenital anomalies which mostly affects structures arising from the first and the second branchial arches. The affected structures include cheekbone, jaws, mouth eyes, ear and vertebrae. The case which we are presenting here had classical features such as microsomia, unilateral microtia, microphthalmia and facial nerve palsy along with vertebral anomalies with additional signs as unilateral hearing loss and radial limb anomalies. OAVS with radial defect and limb abnormalities is a rare presentation and thus reported‥
