Muscular variations are of importance not only to anatomists but also to the clinicians, because they can contribute to the errors in diagnosis and treatment. We present here a variation in the omohyoid muscle, in which the inferior belly was absent. The superior belly was originating from the clavicle and a portion of the muscle was attached to the middle third of the clavicle by thick fascia, the clinical implications of this variation are discussed.
