Variation of the Splenius Capitis Muscle
Author(s): Kirk C. Reeves*, Tommy R. Wright, Cara L. Fisher
During a routine dissection, a novel variant of the splenius capitis muscle, with a unique orientation, was found on a 75-year-old cadaver.
These muscle fibers were found running perpendicular to the primary body of the occipital muscles, from the insertion on the occiput
laterally into fascia. This finding varies from the expected anatomy of the region.
