Dear Editor,

We read with great interest the excellent article by Senthilkumar et al.[1] While taking away no credit from the authors regarding the management of this case, was it really a case of Goldenhar syndrome, as the diagnostic criteria of this syndrome were not fulfilled? Preauricular tags and limbal dermoid are present in various other conditions as well.

At least two of the following findings must be present for diagnosis of this syndrome: unilateral microtia, unilateral mandibular hypoplasia, epibulbar dermoid cysts (unilateral or bilateral), or vertebral malformations.[2] It has been reported that epibulbar dermoids may be associated with conditions such as ring dermoid syndrome with conjunctival extension, preauricular tags, palpebral coloboma, and the mandibulofacial dysostosis of Franceschetti syndrome. Goldenhar syndrome has been expanded further to include vertebral anomalies in it.[3]

Financial support and sponsorship
