    Abstract

    A case of Goldenhar's syndrome (oculoauriculovertebral dysplasia) with the rare association of aplasia of one lung is presented with a discussion of the clinical findings and the aetiology. The major abnormalities, pulmonary, renal and the undergrowth of the jaw were all right-sided, confirming previous reports. This child developed a calcifying epithelioma and this is cited as support for the theory of the origin of these lesions from epidermoid cysts.
