During routine dissection of a female cadaver, we observed variation in vascular structures in the right femoral triangle. The profunda femoris artery was taking a high origin from the femoral artery (FA) just deep to the inguinal ligament, and the lateral femoral circumflex artery was arising from the FA. We also observed differences in the drainage pattern of great saphenous vein, wherein it was superficially crossing the FA to drain into the femoral vein which was located posterior to the FA. This type of rare vascular variation is informative to clinicians, cardiologists, and operating surgeons.
