An exceptional case of a duplicate Meckel’s cartilage in a human fetus, with a C-R length of 57 mm, is studied. Another small cartilage, isolated from Meckel’s, of rounded morphology, was observed in a small region between the temporomandibular joint and the middle ear. This cartilage was only present on the right side.
