Abstract—The arteries of upper limb was studied in 50 cadavers which were dissected by Medical, Dental, and Ayurvedic students in Department of Anatomy, JSS Medical College, Mysore over a period of 3 years 2009-2011.The arteries in 49 cadaveric specimen showed the normal arterial configuration. In one cadaver the course of the artery was anomalous. It showed an unusual tortuous course with loops and bends. Tortuous peripheral arteries are usually aymptomatic. An abnormal superficial tortuous brachial artery and its branches may be mistaken for basilic vein during cannulation. It may also be a cause for focal peripheral neuropathy. Tortuous radial artery is one of the cause for failure of transradial coronary procedure and complications. The clinical importance of the described variation is of utmost significance for surgeons, cardiologists and vascular specialists. 

Index Terms—brachial artery, tortuosity, loops
