During routine dissection, variation in branching pattern of celiac trunk has been observed in adult 54-year-old male cadaver. Instead of normal three branches an additional branch i.e., Left inferior phrenic artery originated from it as fourth branch. Then it divided into two branches, one directly supplied the diaphragm and other branch divided into three sub-branches. First and second branch entered into the left suprarenal gland at its upper and middle pole and third one finally terminated by supplying to the diaphragm. There is no separate middle suprarenal artery on the left side, but inferior suprarenal artery was as usual. No variations have been found on right side in the lateral branches of abdominal aorta. Such a quadrifurcation of celiac trunk to supply suprarenal gland is quiet unique so far searched in literature.
