A rare, unique and previously non-described form of duplicated incomplete superficial palmar arch is reported in the right hand of a male cadaver. The two incomplete arches were formed from the continuation of two terminal palmar branches of the ulnar artery in the distal third of forearm that were connected by a small transverse artery superficial to the flexor retinaculum. Both arches had no contribution from the radial artery. The palmar digital branches from the lateral arch supplied the lateral two-and-a-half fingers, while those from the medial arch supplied the medial two-and-a-half fingers. The thumb and index had additional blood supply from the princeps pollicis and radialis indicis branches of radial artery. The deep palmar arch was entirely formed by the radial artery with no contribution from the ulnar artery. Previous reports on various patterns of superficial palmar arch are highlighted, and the anatomical and clinical importance of the new pattern are discussed.

A fibromatosis of the palmar fascia characterized by thickening and contracture of the fibrous bands on the palmar surfaces of the hand and fingers. It arises most commonly in men between the ages of 30 and 50.
Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.
Small metal or ceramic attachments used to fasten an arch wire. These attachments are soldered or welded to an orthodontic band or cemented directly onto the teeth. Bowles brackets, edgewise brackets, multiphase brackets, ribbon arch brackets, twin-wire brackets, and universal brackets are all types of orthodontic brackets.
Inflammation of the fascia. There are three major types: 1, Eosinophilic fasciitis, an inflammatory reaction with eosinophilia, producing hard thickened skin with an orange-peel configuration suggestive of scleroderma and considered by some a variant of scleroderma; 2, Necrotizing fasciitis (FASCIITIS, NECROTIZING), a serious fulminating infection (usually by a beta hemolytic streptococcus) causing extensive necrosis of superficial fascia; 3, Nodular/Pseudosarcomatous /Proliferative fasciitis, characterized by a rapid growth of fibroblasts with mononuclear inflammatory cells and proliferating capillaries in soft tissue, often the forearm; it is not malignant but is sometimes mistaken for fibrosarcoma.
Contractions of the abdominal muscles upon stimulation of the skin (superficial abdominal reflex) or tapping neighboring bony structures (deep abdominal reflex). The superficial reflex may be weak or absent, for example, after a stroke, a sign of upper (suprasegmental) motor neuron lesions.
