  A 57-year-old male suffered from tingling and paraesthesia on radial side of right hand. We carried out exploration, the process being done, a radial artery passing between the two branches of bifurcated superficial radial nerve was found by accident. Then we performed dissection of the radial artrery a little more distally. It was passing above the extensors of thumb to anstomical snuff box. We treated it with ligating the radial artery, which was done a little above the bifurcated site of superficial radial nerve after angiography of upper extremity. While we were following this procedure, we noticed that symptoms had improved a lot.
  To our knowlege, neuropathy, by itself of superficial radial nerve by the radial artery with anatomical variation has never been reported and therefore we report this case.
Key Words: Superficial radial nerve, radial artery, anatomical variation
