Ipsilateral pulmonary agenesis is considered as a rare association with Goldenhar syndrome and a case of contralateral pulmonary aplasia has been described as an even rarer association.Oculoauricular dysplasia, consisting of preauricular appendages, fistulas, and epibulbar dermoids, was first described by the Swiss ophthalmologist Maurice Goldenhar and hence named Goldenhar syndrome.
