Abstract

Inferior vena cava (IVC) is formed by the union of the common iliac veins anterior to the body of the fifth lumbar vertebra, a little to its right side. It conveys blood to the right atrium from all the structures below the diaphragm. During routine educational dissection for medical undergraduates, we have come across a case of an anomalous communication between right internal iliac vein and left common iliac vein and a variation in the formation of inferior vena cava in a 55-year-old male cadaver. Due to its complex embryogenesis and relationship with other abdominal and thoracic structures, IVC may develop abnormally. These anatomical variations are often clinically silent and discovered incidentally. Knowledge of these variations may be helpful to clinicians and anatomists during surgical exploration, atypical clinical presentations and cadaveric findings.
