Unusual communications between the branches of brachial plexus is not uncommon phenomenon. But among these, aberrant interconnection between radial and ulnar nerve is seldom reported. We present a case of persistence of well established abnormal communication between radial and ulnar nerves and its distribution to medial head of the triceps brachii muscle. Due to this, the triceps brachii which is normally innervated by radial nerve received additional innervations from the twigs of ulnar nerve through this communication. Aberrant communicating nervous channels when persist are vulnerable to iatrogenic injuries during surgical procedures as well as might results in entrapment neuropathic syndromes.
