In general, the brachial artery bifurcates into its terminal branches at the level of the neck of the radius but it is not unusual to find a much earlier bifurcation of the brachial artery at the level of the coracobrachialis muscle insertion. A rare case of bifurcation of the brachial artery at its commencement below the lower border of the teres major muscle has also been described 1.
