Till date appendix holds the same surgical significance, which it had previously. The appendicular artery is considered to be a branch from posterior caecal artery or ileocolic artery entering the mesoappendix from behind the ileum and supplying it. During routine cadaveric dissections some variations were seen in number and course of the appendicular artery. Such three cases of surgical importance along with their review of literature are discussed herewith.
