Congenital midline cervical cleft: a rare embryopathogenic disorder
A 36-day-old boy with CMCC is presented to illustrate its clinical presentation and the result at 24 months postoperatively, which can be seen in association with several midline anomalies related to the branchial arches, including median cleft of the lower lip and mandible, and hypoplasia or absence of other midline neck structures.
