The Oculoauriculovertebral Syndrome, more commonly known as the Goldenhar Syndrome, can be diagnosed by the dermatologist. Findings such as hypoplasia/aplasia of the auricular pavilion, vertebral alterations and accessory tragi are the key elements for the suspicion of the syndrome. Its identification is of utmost importance, given the possibility of other systemic alterations, with impact also on the patient's prognosis. After confirmation of the diagnosis, an integral and multidisciplinary attention is important, because of the plurality of manifestations that can occur in the syndrome.
