Oculo-ectodermal syndrome is a rare condition characterized by aplasia cutis and epibulbar dermoids. We present the case of a 6-year-old girl with oculo-ectodermal syndrome, who was found to have an arachnoid cyst by head computed tomography. This is the third case of oculo-ectodermal syndrome with arachnoid cyst reported in the literature, and suggests that arachnoid cyst may be a phenotypic feature of oculo-ectodermal syndrome.
