Abstract

In the present paper we present a rare variation of entrapment of the medial root of median nerve. During the dissection classes in the Department of Anatomy at Melaka Manipal Medical College, a 50-year-old male cadaver showed the medial root of median nerve passing between the axillary artery and its anomalous branch. Due to this the medial root may be compressed. The clinical significance of the variation is discussed.
