Abstract
Continuous attention has been developed on the anatomical variations of the axilla in anatomist and surgeon due to
their clinical importance. The axillary region is an anatomical space between the lateral part of the chest wall and the medial
aspect of the upper limb. During the routine dissection of embalmed cadavers, we found variant muscular slip originating from
the lateral border of tendinous part of the latissimus dorsi and continuing 9 cm more crossing the axilla. And then, it inserted
into the superior margin of the insertion of the pectoralis major. We considered this muscular variation as axillary arch muscle.
Correct identification of the relevant anatomy and subsequent simple surgical division is curative, paying special attention to
anatomical variations in this region and its clinical importance due to its close relationship to the neurovascular elements of the
axilla.
