Bilateral anotia or microtia is known to be associated with multiple congenital malformations. It may occur due to the teratogenic effect of maternal ingestion of thalidomide and retinoic acid or spontaneously. We report a case of an infant with congenital bilateral anotia and left facial motor weakness presenting with persistent failure to thrive due to recurrent respiratory tract infection.
