Biceps brachii muscle is very variable. Biceps may be composed of one to five heads. Although the variations inthe origin are plenty, there are a very few cases reported on the variations in the insertion of the biceps brachiimuscle. In this report we present a variant biceps brachii muscle which gives an abnormal muscle fasciculusfrom its medial side which continues as a narrow tendinous slip and is inserted in to the medial supracondylarridge of humerus. We discuss in this report, the possible median nerve entrapment due to the presence of sucha variation.
