A young girl with PHACE syndrome presented with a posterior fossa malformation, a segmental telangiectatic right facial haemangioma, a novel aortic arch anomaly, a congenital right fourth cranial nerve palsy (not previously described in this syndrome) and Horner's syndrome. Hydrocephalus was limited to the intrauterine period and detection of the cardiovascular anomalies was a direct result of recognition of this syndrome. She has received laser treatment for the haemangioma and is awaiting surgical correction of her cranial nerve palsy.
