Abstract

The omohyoid muscle is one of the infrahyoid muscles with superior and inferior bellies. Variations of this muscle are clinically important because of its relation to the internal jugular vein as well as its significance in radical neck dissection. A duplicated omohyoid was observed during routine cadaver dissection, which is attached along with the usual inferior belly of the omohyoid into the transverse scapular ligament. Knowledge of anomalies of this muscle is important to minimize the complications during the surgical procedures of cervical region.
