A bifurcation pattern of the abdominal aorta was encountered during routine dissection of abdomen in an adult male cadaver. The abdominal aorta was slightly displaced towards its left and bifurcated at the level of the body of L3 vertebra into right and left common iliac arteries.The common iliac arteries had normal course and their termination into usual internal and external iliac arteries were at different levels (asymmetrical). The median sacral artery was arising from right common iliac artery near its commencement. Knowledge of normal and variable termination of abdominal aorta has important clinical significance in abdominal operations or invasive arterial procedures like laparoscopic, orthopedic and other vascular surgeries and also radiological procedures in the upper part of the abdomen.
