The superficial brachial artery, an anatomical variation of the brachial artery, is usually located anterior to the aponeurosis of the biceps muscle in the forearm. Since it may be mistaken for the cubital vein, it may pose severe problems on intravenous injections. This case report illustrates findings of the superficial brachial artery encountered in the cadaver forearms of a 65-year-old male, that ran superficially along the median nerve.
