Midline congenital cervical cleft is an extremely uncommon anomaly of the neck. Fewer than 100 cases have been reported. It is usually described as a cervical scar-like skin defect. We present a case of midline cervical cleft mimicking linear morphea and treated with topical steroids for 2 years. This is an unusual presentation of this entity that must be treated with surgical excision to confirm the diagnosis histopathologically.
