Accessory muscles are anatomic variants representing additional distinct muscles that are encountered along with the normal complement of muscles1. In the vast majority of cases, accessory muscles are asymptomatic and represent incidental findings at surgery or imaging1. During routine dissection in a male cadaver, an accessory soleus belly was noted arising from the deeper aspect of middle one third of soleus and getting inserted into tendo achilles just before the insertion of the latter into calcaneus.
