The normal ulnar artery originates from the brachial artery in the cubital fossa. The high origin ulnar artery is a rare anatomic variation. Anatomic variations in the arteries of the upper extremities have been reported by different authors. It is significant for surgeons and radiologists to be aware of the possible arterial variations in order to hinder complications during surgical and diagnostic procedures. This report demonstrates an anomalous origin of the ulnar artery from the proximal brachial artery.
