The neurovascular variations in the upper limb are not uncommon. About 16.9% of cases, the subscapular artery bilaterally arises from the second part of the axillary artery without any neuronal variations. However, in this study, we reported a rare case of bilateral subscapular artery variations along with an abnormal communication between the branches of brachial plexus. The knowledge about these bilateral unique neurovascular variations in the axillary region becomes essential, and it is of immense significance in various clinical procedures performed by the plastic surgeon, anesthetist, neurovascular surgeons, radiologists, clinical anatomists and also for interventional cardiologists.
