ABSTRACT
Radial nerve, a nerve of the upper extremity is a branch from the posterior cord of the brachial plexus. At the level of the front of the lateral epicondyle of humerus it divides into its two terminal branches, the superficial level of the front of the lateral epicondyle of humerus it divides into its two terminal branches, the superficial (SBRN) and the deep branch. Normally, SBRN is found to lie deep to the brachioradialis muscle (BR) in the forearm and passes deep to the tendon of BR before winding round the lateral side of the lower end of radius. In the present case, SBRN was found to be passing between two slips of the tendon of BR before entering the dorsum of hand.
