Abstract

Awareness in the variations of infrahyoid muscles is useful guide for both in studies of human anatomy and in clinical practice today. The use of muscular flaps as a reconstructive tool requires a thorough anatomical knowledge of its blood supply and innervations. These muscles vary considerably in the extent of their development. The omohyoid is the most frequently absent muscle of this group. We present a rare case of double nerve supply to the superior belly of omohyoid, which was found during our routine anatomical dissection on the right side of the neck of a 55-year-old male cadaver.
