During the routine anatomical cadaveric dissections performed for medical students, it was observed that, an unusual morphology of the right crus of diaphragm was present. There were two crura on the right side of diaphragm and the left side was normal. We believe that this case is of worth reporting, since it will be enlightening to the clinicians and researchers. The embryological basis and clinical implications are discussed.
