KWINTER, David M et al. Unilateral Double Plantaris Muscle: A Rare Anatomical Variation. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2010, vol.28, n.4, pp.1097-1099. ISSN 0717-9502.

The occurrence of a unilateral second plantaris muscle was discovered during the anatomical dissection of a 47 year old female with Huntington Chorea Disease. The cadaver was found to possess bilateral plantaris muscles and a distinct anomalous muscle morphologically resembling a second plantaris on the medial right leg. The inner and outer bellies of the anomalous plantaris arose proximally from the medial condyle of the femur and formed a short tendon that fused distally with the tendon of the lateral plantaris muscle.

Keywords : Plantaris muscle; Anatomical variation.
