Accessory splenic arteries in the gastrosplenic ligament constitute one of the extremely sub-component of abdominal vasculature variations and it is imperative to recognize this anomaly while planning for complex surgeries in the supra-colic compartment. We report the case of accessory splenic arteries in an approximately 50-year-old male cadaver encountered during routine educational dissection. One of them arising from left gastroepiploic artery supplies the spleen in addition to splenic artery. Another variant vessel bifurcated to enter greater omentum and anterior pole of spleen, as discrete branches. The anatomical vascular variation, if recognized during the imaging work-ups for elective surgical procedures could avoid potential iatrogenic blood loss.
