Abstract

Gluteus Maximus is the largest and superficial muscle in the gluteal region. Rhomboidal in outline, possesses coarse muscle fasciculi. Supplied by inferior gluteal nerve, a branch from the sacral plexus. During routine dissection for undergraduate medical students, we observed, a branch from sciatic nerve, which supplied the gluteus maximus muscle. It’s rare variation. Knowledge of such variations may be useful for surgeons.
