The abnormal deep trunk bifurcated into a common circumflex humeral-subscapular trunk and a profunda brachii artery.
The posterior circumflex humeral artery may arise from the profunda brachii artery and pass back below the teres major instead of passing through the quadrangular space (Johnson & Ellis, 2005).
We also noticed a vascular variation in the present case that the Profunda brachii artery which is normally a large branch of the Brachial artery was of a smaller calibre and it accompanied the Radial nerve initially that is while passing through the lower triangular intermuscular space (between long head of Triceps, shaft of humerus and Teres major) and the upper half of spiral groove and then continued as the middle collateral or posterior descending branch which had its usual course.
The present case is different as Profunda brachii artery though small in calibre is arising as usual from the brachial artery and after passing through the lower triangular space continues as middle collateral artery, so its radial collateral branch is missing which is replaced by descending branch of posterior circumflex humeral artery.
