|Latin||n. pectoralis lateralis|
|Gray's||subject #210 933|
It passes across the axillary artery and vein, pierces the coracoclavicular fascia, and is distributed to the deep surface of the Pectoralis major.
It sends a filament to join the medial anterior thoracic and form with it a loop in front of the first part of the axillary artery.
