Abstract :

 Awareness of the communication between the median and Musculocutaneous nerves is necessary for neurologists, traumatology of the shoulder joints and anesthetists. The axilla and arm were dissected and the various communications between the median and Musculocutaneous nerve were observed. Communications at the level of the upper one third of the arm was present in 3 specimens. The Musculocutaneous nerve after piercing the Coracoachialis fused with the median nerve in one specimen. The Musculocutaneous nerve was absent and anches were arising directly from the median nerve in 3 specimens. There were two communicating anches between median and Musculocutaneous nerves in one specimen. Communication between median nerve and ulnar nerve was present in one specimen
