Gyata Mehta, Varsha Mokhasi.

The median nerve is formed in the axilla by fusion of
the two roots from the lateral and medial cords.The
present case report describes an anomalous presentation
of double formation of median nerve and its relation with
axillary and brachial arteries. The median nerve was
formed in two stages at different levels, first in the axilla
and then in the upper arm by receiving double contribution
from the lateral root of the lateral cord, which fuse with
the medial root of the medial cord to form the median
nerve. The formation took place medial to the axillary
artery in the axilla and antero-medial to the brachial artery
in the arm. Such anatomical variations and their relation
with the arteries are important for the surgeons and
anesthesiologists and of great academic interest to the

Key words: double formation, plexus, lateral cord, axilla
