Right Omohyoid Variant

Author(s): TR Wright*, K Reeves and CL Fisher

During a routine cadaver dissection, a right omohyoid muscle variant was discovered on a 92-year-old embalmed female cadaver. This variant was found to have muscle bellies that attached to the superior border of the scapula, as well as two additional clavicular attachments at the medial and lateral shaft. Consideration should be given to this variant during surgical procedures, trauma, and lateral neck masses. This case report attempts to add to the body of literature detailing omohyoid muscle variations.
