Cervical chondrocutaneous branchial remnants are rare and one of several maformations resulting from abnormal development of the branchial apparatus. These lesions are usually located over or near the insertions of the sternocleidomastoid muscles in the lower neck. It is important to recognize that they may be a visible marker for other malformations and/or anomalies. Treatment is complete surgical removal as promptly as possible in order to get an exact histopathological diagnosis.
