Dissection of the mandibular nerve in a cadaver of southern Chinese origin showed the mylohyoid nerve arising from the lingual nerve and the buccal nerve arising from the inferior alveolar nerve within the mandibular ramus. It is estimated that this variation in the origin of the buccal nerve occurs in 6.1% of the southern Chinese population.
