The brachioradialis muscle originates from the upper part of the lateral supracondylar ridge of the humerus. Variations in its origin are very rare. The aim of this case report is to inform anatomists and clinicians about the presence of an unusually long brachioradialis muscle and about its clinical implication. Case report:We observed the presence of a very long brachioradialis muscle in the left upper limb of an adult male cadaver. The brachioradialis muscle took its origin from the entire length of the lateral supracondylar line and merged with the insertion of the deltoid muscle. Posteriorly some of the deltoid fibres continued into the brachioradialis muscle and anteriorly fleshy fibres of the brachialis muscle directly continued with brachioradialis muscle. Conclusion:The knowledge of such a type of variation is important for anatomists, surgeons and orthopaedicians.
