Abstract

Knowledge of renal vasculature anomalies is important during the preparation of renal and abdominal surgeries. In this case report, we described a rare finding of bilateral aberrant renal arteries, located at the superior pole of both kidneys, in a cadaver of an elderly Asian man during an anatomy practical session. The aberrant arteries branch from the abdominal aorta, slightly above the level of the normal renal arteries. Additionally, an accessory left renal vein was found to originate from the superior pole of the left kidney which later drains into the left renal vein. No accessory right renal vein was observed. The left renal vein was usually located anterior to the aorta, and bilateral testicular veins were noted to drain into common destinations.
