During routine cadaveric dissection, we encountered multiple muscular anomalies in a 58-year-old embalmed male cadaver. All the variations were encountered on the flexor compartment of right upper limb. The anomalies include an axillary arch (Aa) in the axilla, a third head of biceps brachii (Thb) in the arm, a reverse palmaris longus (Rpl) and a Gantzer's muscle (Gm) in the forearm and an unusually large palmaris brevis muscle (Pbm) in the palm. Anatomical description is achieved by measuring the length, width and attachments of the above-mentioned variants. The morphological and clinical significance of the anomalous muscles are discussed.
