Anatomical terms of muscle

In humans, the accessory soleus muscle is the most common accessory muscle in the ankle.[1]

Present in approximately 3% of people, this muscle usually appears as a distant belly, medial to the Achilles tendon. Clinically, the accessory soleus may be associated with pain and edema during periods of prolonged exercise.[2]
