### Abstract

In this article, we discuss a type of second-order neutral differential equations with variable coefficient and delay: \begin{aligned} (x(t)-c(t)x(t-\tau (t)))''+a(t)x(t)=f(t,x(t-\delta (t))), \end{aligned} ( x ( t ) - c ( t ) x ( t - τ ( t ) ) ) ′ ′ + a ( t ) x ( t ) = f ( t , x ( t - δ ( t ) ) ) , where $$c(t)\in C({\mathbb {R}},{\mathbb {R}})$$ c ( t ) ∈ C ( R , R ) and $$|c(t)|\ne 1$$ | c ( t ) | ≠ 1 . By employing Krasnoselskii’s fixed-point theorem and properties of the neutral operator $$(Ax)(t):=x(t)-c(t)x(t-\tau (t))$$ ( A x ) ( t ) : = x ( t ) - c ( t ) x ( t - τ ( t ) ) , some sufficient conditions for the existence of periodic solutions are established.
