Goldenhar syndrome with arachnoid cyst and hydrocephalous by ProQuest


Goldenhar syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by a wide spectrum of physical features particularly craniofacial. We report an infant with developmental delay, and seizures who had features of Goldenhar syndrome and had an arachnoid cyst. Though the syndrome itself is not very rare, the presence of arachnoid cyst and hydrocephalus prompted us to report this case. Arachnoid cyst relates to developmental errors in the neural crest and thus presence of arachnoid cyst in the index case supports the argument of neural migration defect in the pathogenesis in Goldenhar syndrome. Only one such case in the world literature has been reported earlier. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
