ABSTRACT
This paper describes the absence of palmaris longus muscle. This variation was found during cadaver dissection in the department of Shareera Rachana at Sri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwar College of Ayurveda & Hospital, Hassan, Karnataka (India). During routine dissection of a male cadaver (about 55 years of age), in the left upper limb authors observed the absence of palmaris longus muscle. Authors have compared their findings with the presence of palmaris longus muscle of other limb and possible variations of palmaris longus muscle reported in the literature. The importance of variation in absence of palmaris longus muscle has been discussed.
