  • The sternalis muscle is an anatomic variation well known to anatomists, but relatively unknown to clinicians and surgeons. It is localized superficially to the pectoralis major and can cause a diagnostic dilemma during breast surgery, mammography, and computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging scans, as its appearance mimics tumor pathology of the region. We studied the presence of longitudinally placed muscles in the anterior thoracic wall in 45 cadavers (90 hemithoraces). In an 83… CONTINUE READING
