Hemifacial microsomia is a well known yet rare collection of developmental facial defects. Almost half of all known cases exhibit additional anomalies beyond the classic malformations of the first and second brachial arches. This case is unique in that it describes a child with hemifacial microsomia and an associated oropharyngeal stenosis, nasal stenosis and a v-shaped mandibular deformity.
