The knowledge of anatomical variations of the vascular junction between the celiac trunk and superior mesenteric artery is surgically significant. A case of unusually long dorsal pancreatic artery that originated from the common hepatic artery and directly anastomosed with the middle colic artery thus forming a rarely reported variant of Bühler's arcade is presented (Fig. 1, Ref. 14).
