Knowledge of the arterial variations is the key for the success of surgeries when it matters the most. This study puts in an effort to find the Arterial variations of   thyroid gland in females so as to find if there are deviations from the normal population and also provides us with a useful data for the operating surgeons. The clinical implications of the study are vast.
