Aberrations in the deep wrist flexors are frequently documented. These varied muscles might account for anterior interosseous nerve compression syndrome. The present study describes a case with three variations in the deep flexor of wrist comprising two separate small muscle bellies with their tendons and a higher level cleavage of the lateral tendon of flexor digitorum profundus muscle. Such a triple anomaly is a rare occurrence that has to be borne in mind by hand surgeons in case of nerve entrapment syndromes.
