The paper deals with the survey of 66 congenital neck malformations (27 thyroglossal cysts and 32 branchial plus 7 lymphatic anomalies) surgically treated in the last 5 years term. Thyroglossal cysts presented in children and young people, in the middle line, and 92.6% of them were infrahyoid. Recidivation appeared in 7.4% of all cases, always in connection with previous infections. Branchial malformations presented on the neck's side of middle age persons were related to the 2nd. cleft (97%). Lymphatic anomalies presented in children under 3 years, in these instances the dissection sheaths were not spared and the neighboring structures altered.
