Variations of the median nerve and ulnar artery have been well documented in the literature. In the present case, splitting of the median nerve by the ulnar artery is presented. Our literature searches revealed that there was no article, to our knowledge, describing such splitting. We think that this variation should be kept in mind during surgical and diagnostic procedures.
