Goldenhar syndrome is a rare condition with multiple anomalies involving craniofacial structures including the eyes, ears, and vertebrae. The etiology of this usually unilateral syndrome is unclear. We report a case of Goldenhar syndrome who presented with a limbal dermoid in the left eye and left pre-auricular skin tags. The multisystem aspects of this rare disease have been discussed with emphasis on early diagnosis and multispeciality approach necessary to manage it.
