Arterial anomalies of the upper limb are frequently encountered during cadaveric dissections. An adult female cadaver was found to have double brachial arteries bilaterally. The superficial brachial arteries ended near the elbow by dividing into radial and superficially running ulnar arteries whereas the deep brachial artery continued as common interosseous artery. Persistence of both the primitive arterial systems has been claimed to lead to such anomalies. Knowledge of such anomaly is important to avoid diagnostic and therapeutic misadventures.
