I have written a comment


"Palmaris longus muscle" article in wikipedia shows it other way. there 1 muscle stands out in middle, and in your hand 2 muscles stand out in left and right side.

see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmaris_longus_muscle .

so, question appears, which of these correct? probably wikipedia is correct. but is this question on topic here?

  • It's not off topic but all I see is a bit of anatomical variation. I don't think the video or wikipedia is wrong.

  • maybe somebody here can give better, more full answer, showing several variants how it look when it present, and several variants when it is not present.

  • Then what would your question be if both sources are correct? Asking for a list of examples would be off topic.

  • I think that this is a valid question for this site! Do go ahead and ask it, that should be answerable. I do not think that a list of examples would be necessary!

  • i searched in google for "how to detect Palmaris longus muscle?" and first result is an article in "men's health", it contains a video by Institute of Human Anatomy. see from 6:22: youtu.be/yc1VgVw7F9w?t=6m22s . i think the man from the first video has shown flexor carpi radialis, which is more close to thumb.

  • i changed my mind. i checked some videos more and now i think, most important is how sharply does it stand out. seems he has that muscle.
