This paper presents and describes an anatomical variation of the lingual artery originating from the right common carotid artery. This variation was found in a male cadaver at Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences Deemed University, Karad (MS), India, during routine dissection classes for medical undergraduate students. On right side the lingual artery was originated from common carotid artery 6 mm below its bifurcation. In this case, we reported high division of common carotid artery at the tip of the styloid process. However, arterial branching pattern and point of bifurcation on left side were as usual.
