Advances in medicine and technology have increased brachial artery utilization for diagnostic and interventional radiology. Hence, detection and assessment of variations in upper extremity vasculature are important regardless of the low surgical intervention rate in the upper extremity. Anomalies of the upper extremity artery are infrequently reported, and anomalies of the brachial artery are even less common. Presented here is a case of developmental failure of the brachial artery. A segment about 2.1 cm from its origin was treated with bypass surgery. This is presented as an uncommon variation of the brachial artery.
