ABSTRACT
Multiple variations of the nerves arising from the lumbar plexus were found on the right side of a 35-year-old female cadaver. These were the accessory lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (aLFCN) arising from the femoral nerve, double ilioinguinal nerves and an accessory nerve branch joining to the genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve. The possible clinical problems related to the variations of these nerves were discussed.
