Background:rnGoldenhar syndrome, or oculo-auriculo-vertebral syndrome, is a poly-malformative syndrome associating most often an epibulbar dermoid cyst, pretragial diverticula and vertebral anomalies. We report a rare observation of Goldenhar syndrome associating lateral labial cleft, dermoids of the occular limbus and pre-tragic excretionrnrnMaterials & Methods: This is the observation of female child 2 years old presenting a Goldenhar syndrome associating lateral cleft lip, dermoids of the occular limb and pre-tragic exchroissance and pre-auricular diverticula. Compliterary examinations, namely stromal radiograph of the echocardiography spine, did not show any associated abnormalitiesrnThe hospital were the surgery has taken is : EHS El-Mensourah Constantine, Child and Adolescent Hospital, Constantine, AlgeriarnrnDiscussion: Goldenhar syndrome is a rare malformation syndrome related with an anomaly of development of the first gill arches. Although most cases of SDEG are sporadic, the modalities of autosomal recessive inheritance and the dominant have been described. Also referred to as oculo-atrial dysplasia, it is most often unilateral affecting the soft tissues and less the bone component. It usually includes peribulbar dermoids or dermolipomas, pre-auricular cuticular diverticula, abnormalities of the shape of the auricle, conductive hypo-acoustics; abnormalities of the facial area and sometimes vertebral anomalies. It can be added to these malformative alterations a coloboma of the eyelid, a Duane syndromea and very rarely microphthalmia or anophthalmia.rnrnConclusion: Through this observation, we discuss the pathogenic aspects and clinics of this rare clinical entity and the therapeutic measures taken.rn

Introduction: Lung carcinoma, the most common malignancy worldwide, presents as a metastatic disease in majority of the cases. The most frequent sites of distant metastases are liver, adrenal glands, bones, and brain. Skeletal muscle metastasis is an unusual presentation of lung adenocarcinoma. rnrnCase report: A 53 year old male patient, labourer by occupation, beedi smoker since 25 years, admitted to tertiary care hospital with pain and swelling over left arm, cough and expectoration since 2 months, accompanied with weight loss of three kilograms. There was no evidence of chest pain or hemoptysis. On examination, there was hard swelling over extensor compartment of left upper limb with mild tenderness, no loss of sensation and mild restriction of range of movements on flexion at elbow. Respiratory and other system examination was within normal results. CT chest pain defined multilobulated lesion in right perihilar location in right middle lobe. USG study of left arm showed an irregular heterogenous soft tissue lesion noted within the triceps muscle with few areas of intra-lesional necrosis, MRI of left arm showed lobulated lesion in posteromedial aspect of mid and distal arm, involving triceps muscle, medial aspect of brachialis, encasing brachial artery, veins and median nerve. PET CT showed enhancing nodular soft tissue lesion noted in middle lobe of right lung, 2.9x2.4 cm. Biopsy revealed metastatic adenocarcinoma. For further studies immunophenotyping was done which showed negative for EGFR and ALK. Patient was treated with palliative RT, Pem-Carbo f/b pemtrexed maintenance and recently 3# of Gemcitabine. The patient died of metastasis to brain within eight weeks of diagnosis. rnrnConclusion: Lung carcinoma with skeletal muscle metastasis should be considered as a potential differential diagnosis in patients presenting with intramuscular mass.rn
