We report a case of congenital cartilaginous rests of the neck. A one-year-old infant presented with a skin-colored, asymptomatic protruding papule over the right neck which had been noted since birth. The papule was located at the anterior border of the right sternocleidomastoid muscle, approximately 2cm above the clavicle. The lesion was firm and rubbery in consistency. On microscopic examination it revealed some hair follicles and sebaceous glands in the dermis. Fat tissue and a central core of cartilage surrounded by a narrow zone of connective tissue were also noted .He received excisional surgery and there was no recurrence after one year of follow-up.
