A rare muscle anomaly: The Supraclavicularis Proprius Muscle

Monday, July 20th, 2009

The supraclavicularis proprius muscle is an abnormal muscle that may be found in the supraclavicularisfossaDuring routine dissection of 78 cadavers (corresponding to 156 supraclavicular fossae), 10% formalin fixed, we found it in one adult Caucasian male cadaver. In our experience, the frequency of occurrence of the supraclavicularis proprius muscle would be 0.64%This abnormal muscle consists of an anterior tendon inserting into the sternal aspect of the clavicle, lateral to the clavicular insertion of thesternocleidomastoideus muscle, and a posterior muscular portion entering the lateral aspect of the clavicle, medial to the acromioclavicular joint.
