The lateral frontobasal artery (Lateral orbitofrontal artery) is a branch of the insular part (M2 segment) of MCA of the middle cerebral artery that passes anteriorly on the inferior and lateral side of the frontal lobe, and distributed to to the orbital gyri and inferior frontal gyrus.

The cortical area supplied by this artery (Michotey et al.) is the orbitofrontal area: orbital portion of the middle and inferior frontal gyri and the inferio part of the pars orbitalis.
