REDDY, Sreenivasulu; RAMANA  VOLLALA  , Venkata  and  RAO, Mohandas. Absence of Inferior Gluteal Artery: A Rare Observation. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2007, vol.25, n.1, pp.95-98. ISSN 0717-9502.

The gluteal region is an important anatomical and clinical area which contains muscles and vital neurovascular bundles. They are important for their clinical and morphological reasons. In this manuscript we report a rare case of absence of inferior gluteal artery. In the same specimen the superior gluteal artery was taking origin from the anterior division of internal iliac artery. The structures normally supplied by the inferior gluteal artery were supplied by a branch coming from the superior gluteal artery. The developmental and clinical significance of the anatomical variation is discussed

Keywords : Internal iliac artery; Inferior gluteal artery; Superior gluteal artery; Anatomical variation.
