Craniofacial microsomia covers a set of morphogenetic anomalies that affect structures arising from the first and second brachial arches. Due to the vast phenotypic variation and complexity of the malformation, a global treatment that is coordinated by a multidisciplinary team is imperative. Herein, the authors describe 3 clinical patients and discuss the different therapies used according to the type of microsomia present. It was concluded that early and integrated treatment, which considers all the affected and potentially affected soft and hard tissue, is needed, and that patients must be monitored until they have finished growing.
