During the routine cadaveric dissection of the upper extremities at the Department of Anatomy of Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Science, one cadaver was found to have Persistent Median Artery (PMA) in the Carpal Tunnel. The PMA in present cadaver was as large as the radial artery originated from the brachial artery and ran distally, passed under the flexor retinaculum. The PMA involved in formation of radio-medio-ulnar type of superficial palmar arch (SPA). Although this type of SPA occurs very rarely, damage can affect the arterial supply of the fingers. This data could provide information for vascular surgeons harvesting PMA or a radial artery for coronary artery bypass grafting.
