Abstract

In an anatomy class, dissection led to the discovery of a hitherto unreported multiple variation of the muscles in the upper and lower extremities of a Turkish male cadaver. The variant muscles were the palmaris longus of the reverse type in the right and a double reverse palmaris longus in the left forearm, and the extensor medius proprius in the left forearm and a supernumerary muscle slip originating from the posterior tibialis in the left crus.
