A branchial arch syndrome combining mandibular dysostosis (Nager and de Reynier) and oculovertebral dysplasia (Weyers and Thier) is demonstrated in an 8-year-old-white boy. In his 7-year-old sister preauricular appendages and a high-arched palate are found. Both children are shown to have facial dysplasia involving derivatives of the first branchial arch.
