Knowledge of vascular variations in the head and neck is important to surgeons doing head and neck surgery as well as to radiologists doing catheterization and to clinicians in general. In the current case, multiple vascular variations in the right side of neck are reported. The common carotid artery bifurcated at a higher level than usual. The classic external jugular vein was absent. This anomalous external jugular vein was formed by the union of posterior auricular, retromandibular and facial veins. The vein passed superficial to the sternocleidomastoid, hooked around its lateral border and terminated in the internal jugular vein.
