NIH Rare Diseases:47 Goldenhar disease is a condition that is present at birth and mainly affects the development of the eye, ear and spine. The main characteristics are facial asymmetry (one side of the face is different from the other), a partially formed ear (microtia) or totally absent ear (anotia), noncancerous (benign) growths of the eye (ocular dermoid cysts), and spinal abnormalities. Goldenhar disease may also affect the heart, lungs, kidneys, and central nervous system. It is due to problems that occur when the fetus is forming within the womb of the mother, in structures known as the first and second brachial arch. These structures will develop to form the neck and the head. The cause is still unknown. Goldenhar syndrome is part of a group of conditions known as craniofacial microsomia. It is not known whether the conditions included in the group really are different conditions or part of the same problem with different degrees of severity. Treatment is age-dependent, with interventions at appropriate stages of skull and face growth and development. Last updated: 4/23/2016
MalaCards based summary: Hemifacial Microsomia, also known as goldenhar syndrome, is related to hemifacial microsomia with radial defects and lateral facial dysplasia, and has symptoms including facial asymmetry, micrognathia and hearing impairment. An important gene associated with Hemifacial Microsomia is HFM (Hemifacial Microsomia), and among its related pathways is Transcriptional regulation of pluripotent stem cells. Affiliated tissues include eye, kidney and lung, and related mouse phenotypes are hearing/vestibular/ear and behavior/neurological.
Disease Ontology:11 A syndrome that is characterized by incomplete development of the ear, nose, soft palate, lip, and mandible. It is associated with anomalous development of the first branchial arch and second branchial arch.
