Multiple forearm muscle variants including a rare hypothenar variant

Author(s): Kevin R. Kelliher*, David Terfera, Jeff Pracella and Eric Kelly

Variants of the palmaris longus, flexor pollicis longus and a rare hypothenar muscle were observed bilaterally. The palmaris longus presented as a different variant on either side, a reverse palmaris longus and a bifid palmaris longus. The accessory head of the flexor policis longus was observed in both forearms and a rarely seen accessory hypothenar muscle was found bilaterally.
