|The right brachial plexus with its short branches, viewed from in front. The Sternomastoid and Trapezius muscles have been completely, the Omohyoid and Subclavius have been partially, removed; a piece has been sawed out of the clavicle; the Pectoralis muscles have been incised and reflected.|
|Latin||fasciculus lateralis plexus brachialis|

|From||brachial plexus - anterior divisions from the upper and middle trunks|
|To||lateral pectoral nerve|
The Lateral cord is a division of the brachial plexus.
The lateral cord gives rise to the following nerves:
- The lateral pectoral nerve, C5, C6 and C7 to the pectoralis major muscle
- The musculocutaneous nerve which innervates the biceps muscle
- The median nerve, partly. The other part comes from the medial cord.
|Nerves of upper limbs (primarily): the brachial plexus|
| supraclavicular: dorsal scapular - suprascapular - to the subclavius - long thoracic
posterior cord: subscapular (upper, lower) - thoracodorsal - axillary (superior lateral cutaneous of arm) - radial (muscular, inferior lateral cutaneous of arm, posterior cutaneous of arm, posterior cutaneous of forearm, superficial branch, deep branch, posterior interosseous)
