Rectus is one of basic, included in the front abdominal honeycomb tribe. This muscle plays an important physiological role and also has a great esthetic meaning, especially for men. In the late decades its right anatomic construction has become the symbol of physical beauty of human’s body. It starts with V-VII costal cartilage and is attached to pubic bone. There are 3-4 transversally tendinous intersection over the length of muscle. The different anomalous variants of its building - as a full lack- aplasia, underdevelopment of different parts - hypoplasia, lack of tendinous intersection and etc are described in the literature. The author gives the case of anomaly of development of rectus, intraoperationally revealed as a lack of distal part on the right at the patient who was 54 years old.
