Congenital midline cervical cleft is a rare developmental anomaly of the neck region with only 200 cases reported till date. This case report highlights an unusual association of congenital midline cervical cleft and maternal diabetes. We report a neonate born to a mother with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes who presented with a midline neck lesion characterized by a proximal skin tag, middle mucosal surface and a distal blind sinus causing micro retrognathia with no other visible malformation. Most of the cases reported till date have a sporadic occurrence. This is the first possible report of this anomaly in a neonate of diabetic mother. This raises a possibility of being a part of diabetic embryopathy, however occurrence by chance cannot be completely ruled out.
