A webbed neck, or pterygium colli deformity, is a congenital skin fold that runs along the sides of the neck down to the shoulders. There are many variants.

Associated conditions

It is a feature of Turner syndrome[1] and Noonan syndrome,[2] as well as the rarer Klippel-Feil syndrome.[3]


On babies, webbed neck may look like loose folds of skin on the neck. As the child grows, the skin may stretch out to look like there is little or no neck.
