Abstract: A subgroup of a group is said to be *normal-by-finite* if the core of in has finite index in . In this article groups satisfying the minimal condition on subgroups which are not normal-by-finite and groups with finitely many conjugacy classes of subgroups which are not normal-by-finite are characterized.
