There are four major components to Goldenhar syndrome: deformity of the auricle, EAC atresia, malformation of the tympanic cavity, and ossicular abnormalities causing conductive hearing loss. 21,22 Pfeiffer syndrome is another cause of EAC stenosis/atresia that results in moderate to severe conductive or mixed hearing loss in patients with craniofacial abnormalities. In addition to the stenosis and/or atresia of the EAC, there is hypoplasia of the middle ear cavity and occasionally hypoplastic ossicles.

First BCCs are less common than second BCC cysts and account for less than 8% of all BCCs. A first BCC arises in a periauricular location, often parallels the EAC in orientation, and can be enveloped by the parotid gland. A congenital tract or sinus from the BCC may communicate with the EAC. 38 Although there are two possible subtypes of a first BCC, there are no strict or well-defined histological and anatomical features for each one. 40 On rare occasions with any BCC, there can also be communication with the skin surface, producing a fistula.
