Abstract
Case report

A 4-year-old male diagnosed with Goldenhar syndrome, with an unremarkable ophthalmic history, develops a neurotrophic ulcer secondary to trigeminal nerve aplasia. It was treated with multilaminar amniotic membrane transplantation.

Discussion

Trigeminal nerve aplasia is not usually reported in Goldenhar syndrome. Therefore, it seems necessary to perform routine eye examinations, from an early age, to prevent serious complications associated with corneal anesthesia.

Keywords:
Goldenhar syndrome
Trigeminal nerve aplasia
Neurotrophic ulcer
Amniotic membrane transplantation
Corneal hypoesthesia
Resumen
Caso clínico

Varón de 4 años de edad diagnosticado de síndrome de Goldenhar, sin antecedentes oftalmológicos relevantes, desarrolla una úlcera neurotrófica secundaria a aplasia de nervio trigémino que es tratada con trasplante de membrana amniótica multilaminar.

Discusión

En el síndrome de Goldenhar no suele estar descrita la aplasia de nervio trigémino como manifestación oftalmológica típica. Por tanto, parece necesario realizar controles oftalmológicos rutinarios y desde una edad temprana, para evitar la aparición de complicaciones graves asociadas a la anestesia corneal.
