Congenital midline cervical cleft (CMCC) is a very rare malformation of the anterior neck. We present a case of a male neonate with typical features of this anomaly who underwent Z-plasty repair at the age of 2 months with excellent cosmetic and functional outcome. We recommend early surgical intervention to avoid complications, which result if surgery is delayed. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of CMCC to be reported from Saudi Arabia.
