The article presents a clinical case of an atypical localization of a lateral cyst of the neck, with the spread of the tumor from the carotid triangle of the neck to the submandibular triangle. However, it was determined intraoperatively, that the distal part of the tumor formed closely adjacent to the posterior pole of the submandibular salivary gland and the posterior belly of the digastric, while its medial part was localized above the submandibular gland, namely between the gland and the diaphragm of the oral cavity and extending in the direction of the hyoid bone, though not reaching it. In addition, the membrane of the tumor was closely healed to the capsule of the submandibular salivary gland. The atypical localization of the lateral cyst of the neck made it completely impossible to manipulate it, without extirpation of the submandibular salivary gland. Therefore, it was necessary to excise the submandibular salivary gland along with the cyst.
