Abstract

Goldenhar syndrome (GHS) is also known as Oculo-Auriculo-Vertebral (OAV) syndrome or Branchial arch syndrome. Duane retraction syndrome (DRS) is a congenital disorder of ocular motility characterized by limited abduction, adduction or both. It is unilateral in 80% of cases. The important and interesting part of this eight months old child is presence of GHS with DRS. She has bilateral invol-vement, which is seen in only 5-8% of GHS, as compared to high incidence of unilateral involve-ment. This child also had refractive error of + 6.00/ - 1.5 * 180. At four year of age her vision with glass was 6/9. Children with GHS and DRS should have early eye examination done to treat the problem of refractive error.

Keywords: Duane retraction syndrome; goldenhar syndrome, refractive error.
