Webbed neck describes the appearance of the neck where a skin fold runs from approxiamately the sternocleidomastoid to the shoulder, or variations thereof.

It usually results from cystic hygroma of the neck in early fetal life, which may persist to the neonatal period, and is seen in Turner's and Noonan's syndromes.
