Abstract
Although numerous reports have found accessory or supernumerary muscles throughout
the human body, multiple appearances of these variations biased toward one side of body
are rare. We report a 76-yr-old male cadaver with an accessory head of the biceps brachii
and palmaris profundus, and a muscular slip between the biceps femoris and
semitendinosus on the left side in addition to a bilateral accessory belly of the digastric
muscle. No remarkable nervous, vascular, or visceral variation accompanied these
variations. An interruption of normal somitogenesis or myogenesis may be a cause of these
variations.
