2012 Journal of Clinical Case Reports  
During routine dissection of a male cadaver, in the Department of Anatomy, Pinnamaneni Siddhartha Institute of Medical science, presence of bilateral superior accessory renal arteries was noted. They took origin from the antero lateral aspect of abdominal aorta, below the origin of superior mesenteric artery and above the origin of main renal arteries. The main right and left renal arteries took their origin from the lateral aspect of abdominal aorta, at the level of the origin of inferior

Proper knowledge of variations of the arteries supplying the kidney is essential not only to the anatomists but also to the vascular surgeons, urologists, nephrologists and radiologists. Such vascular variations as noted in the present study have been explained in light of embryogenic development.
