During routine dissection, an uncommon variation was found in the renal vessels of a male cadaver.a Each kidney was found to have two renal veins and the branches of the renal artery lie outside the hilum. In the present scenario, it has become imperative for the surgeons understand the abnormalities of renal vasculature, as the utility of laparoscopic renal surgeries grew considerably. Otherwise such surgeries may be hampered by these anatomical variations. The presence of these abnormalities is also accountable in radiological Imagings, renal transplant, selective segmental clamping during partial Nephrectomy. Hence, this case report will throw light in the understanding of renal vasculature and its anatomical, embryological variations.
