Abstract

Anatomic variations of the brachial plexus are common. Awareness of these variations is of paramount importance in clinical practice mainly in achieving best results in minimal invasive or surgical procedures. The aim of our study was to depict a case of a trifid lateral root origin of the medial nerve. This anatomical variation in the brachial plexus was encountered after dissection in upper extremities in a 90-year-old male cadaver.
