The Sural nerve is generally formed by the union of the medial Sural cutaneous nerve derived from the Tibial nerve, and the communicating fibular branch or lateral Sural cutaneous nerve a branch derived from the common peroneal (fibular) nerve.

The union that results in the formation of the Sural nerve occurs in the middle or lower third of the leg. Although the Sural nerve has a constant topographical localization, anatomic variations are frequent. Clinically, sural nerve is frequently used in biopsy and as a graft in nerve transplantation. Therefore, knowledge about the course, formation pattern and variation of Sural nerve is important for the above mentioned procedures.
