Variations in gut axial vasculature warrant attention owing to its catastrophes which arise during surgeries of the upper abdomen. Here, we report a case of anomalous origin of the middle colic artery from the celiac trunk in an approximately 70-year-old male cadaver. Celiac trunk forms the axial vasculature of the foregut. The middle colic artery is a branch of the superior mesenteric artery, the axial vasculature of mid-gut. Among the anatomical variations in the branching pattern of gut vasculature, the knowledge regarding this anomaly would, therefore, be helpful for the gastroenterologists, radiologists, and interventionists.
