We read with great interest the excellent article by Gurnani and Kaur titled “Asymptomatic Goldenhar syndrome in an adult.” We applaud the efforts of the authors in describing the challenges in detail. However, we would like to highlight an important aspect.
The case has features of Goldenhar syndrome, but if we consider the diagnostic criteria, then only one feature was present out of the minimum two. At least two of the following findings must be present for the diagnosis of this syndrome: unilateral microtia, unilateral mandibular hypoplasia, epibulbar dermoid cysts (unilateral or bilateral), or vertebral malformations. Microtia, unilateral mandibular hypoplasia, and vertebral malformations have not been stated/or were not present?
