We report two variations of celiac trunk which we found during the routine dissections of cadavers in Anatomy Department, Government Medical College, Thrissur, Kerala. Even though enormous number of variations of celiac trunk are reported, quadrifurcation of celiac trunk into splenic, hepatic, left gastric and gastroduodenal is a very rare variation. Awareness of the arterial variations in the upper gastrointestinal region, such as shown in our case, is very important during surgical and radiological procedures pertaining to the liver and adjacent viscera.
