Our patient had accessory tragi as a presenting feature which can also be found in various other syndromes like Trecher-Collins syndrome, Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, Nager's acrofacial dysostosis, Wildervanck syndrome, Townes-Brocks Syndrome and Delleman syndrome.5 However, our patient also had classical limbal dermoid and mild cleft palate which confirmed the diagnosis of Goldenhar syndrome.
