Sir,

We read with great interest the excellent article by Tiple et al. titled bilateral Goldenhar syndrome: A rare case report.[1] We applaud the authors on diagnosing and managing the rare entity but would like to make interesting contributions.

In the differential diagnosis, the respected authors have stated that “Treacher Collins syndrome is associated with maxillary and mandibular hypoplasia but is not associated with ocular and aural anomalies.” But according to a study, ophthalmic abnormalities include downward slanting of the palpebral fissures (89%) with notching of the lower eyelids (69%) and a paucity of lid lashes medial to the defect (69%).[2]

Other ocular manifestations in relation to Goldenhar syndrome which require attention are coloboma of upper eyelid, iris, choroid and retina, anopthalmos/micropthalmos, strabismus/nystagmus, duane retraction syndrome, decreased corneal sensation, cataract, neuroparalytic keratitis, dacryostenosis, and proptosis.[3]
