Isotretinoin is a retinoid which is derived from Vitamin A. It is indicated for severe cystic acne treatment, but it has been classified as teratogenic. A wide spectrum of birth defects including craniofacial, heart, and nervous system malformations have been described with prenatal exposure to this drug. We report the case of a newborn with a history of prenatal exposure to isotretinoin with craniofacial defects, including left-sided anotia, right-sided microtia, complex congenital heart disease, and central nervous system malformation.
