Abstract

The profunda femoris artery is normally accompanied by a profunda femoris vein (deep femoral vein), which begins at the adductor magnus with various tributaries and drains into the femoral vein at the femoral triangle. Very rarely, the profunda femoris vein establishes communication with the popliteal vein. We present an anomalous profunda femoris vein in a 62-year-old male cadaver whose vein was located in the popliteal fossa as a direct communicating channel between the popliteal vein and the femoral vein.
