  Axillary artery originate from subclavian artery and feed axilla walls and after inferior border of teres major, this artery continues its route as brachial artery and several branches originate from it. So far some various variation of axillary artery and its branches are reported. Since axillary artery feeds the upper limb, it seems essential to be aware of its branches and variations. In this case we observed variation in axillary artery and its branches: thoracodorsal artery which is resumption of subscapular artery in normal situation , originates from lateral thorasic. subscapular artery which derived from the third part of the axillary artery is sandwiched between two roots of median nerve at its origin and anterior and posterior circumflex humeral arteries originated from subscapular. profunda brachii (a branch of brachial artery in normal situation) was resumption of subscapular artery. noticing the possibility of existence of these variations in the upper limb can be valuable and help surgeons to reduce the potential of mistakes and side effects in surgery
