This rare syndrome was first described by Goldenhar [1] . It is characterised by epibulbar dermoids; accessary auricular appendages and aural fistulae. This is unilateral and sometimes may be associated with mandibulo facial dysostosis.

Rarely other anomalies of the eye; nervous, muscular and skeletal systems may be associated with Goldenhar's syndrome. Recently a case of Oculo auricular Cranial dysplasia, having hydrocephalous meningo - encephalo­cele and a-nasal deformity along with Goldenhar's syndrome has been reported by Gupta J. S [2] .

We have come across an adult male having bilateral auricular appandages, epibulbar dermoid and othe rare anomalies. This case is being reported because of its extreme rarity, mixed picture of Goldenhar syndrome with other rare anomalies and bilateral auricular appendages.
