During routine osteology demonstration of the posterior cranial fossa we noticed a transverse bony canal in the middle third of the clivus of an adult male skull. The canal was situated 1.8 cm in front the anterior border of the foramen magnum. The length of the canal was 0.6 cm long. The possible embryological basis and clinical significance of the variation was discussed.
