Introduction: Neurovascular variations in the upper limb are common and they are well documented. They may be due to the unusual paths in the primary vascular plexuses, because of persistence of vessels which normally regress, or due to absorption of vessels which normally retains, or the incomplete development or fusions and regressions of distinct parts. These arteries could be palmar type or medio-ulnar type .An accurate knowledge of the normal and the variant anatomy of the median artery is important for clinical procedures and for vascular surgeries
