This article includes a unique and complex variation in the arterial pattern of right hand of a male cadaver. The arterial supply of hand in this case was through an incomplete superficial palmar arch formed by ulnar artery that supplied medial 2 ½ fingers through proper and common digital branches. Median and radial arteries supplied lateral 2 ½ fingers of the hand through common digital branches. A loop of communication was present between radial and median arteries. The Knowledge of anatomical variations in the arterial pattern of hand is of utmost importance for the surgeons in executing safer and precise reconstructive surgical procedures in the hand.
