Developmental variations of the liver, caecum and vermiform appendix are relatively rare. We found a large notched liver and an infantile subhepatic caecum in an adult female cadaver. The right lobe of the liver had two deep notches on the antero-superior surface. The right iliac fossa was empty. The caecum was conical and the appendix was attached to the tip of the conical caecum. Knowledge of these variations may be of use to the radiologists and surgeons.
