Goldenhar syndrome is a rare disorder of unknown etiology. The most frequent findings are vertebral defects, hemifacial microsomia and ear abnormalities. We present an 8-year-old boy with oculo-auriculo-vertebral (Goldenhar) syndrome. He also had a parachute mitral valve and growth hormone deficiency. Parachute mitral valve is a previously unreported finding while growth hormone deficiency was reported just in one case in the literature.
