We present an unusual ulnar nerve path variation case, in forearm first 12 cm, with anatomical structures description in relation to this anatomical variation. This must be consider in the ulnar nerve finding absence during its usal surgical preformance, as occurs in ulnar nerve compression transplant cases. In this way, pathology relapses can be avoided, and other anatomical factors can be added as nerve compression causes.

KEY WORDS: Ulnar nerve; Path variation; Forearm.
