The supracondylar process is an uncommon anomaly that presents as a beak-like bony projection from the anteromedial aspect of the humerus. Many of these occurrences are reported as sporadic case reports or small series. While the true incidence cannot be assessed as very few of these have clinical problems like neurovascular compression (brachial artery or median nerve entrapment) due to ligament of Struther's attached to it. Incidentally, these lesions can be noted in clinical settings while treating some other conditions. We describe a series of four cases that were incidentally seen in our center when radiographs were done for various reasons.
