Arterial pattern of the kidney is variable and often one or two accessory renal arteries may exist. Presence of multiple renal arteries is more common on the left side than on the right side. We report here a unilateral case of double renal arteries supplying the right kidney. Both the arteries were originating as lateral branches from the abdominal aorta about 1-1.5cm apart. The numeric aberrations involved in the arterial pattern of the kidney make it unsuitable for kidney transplantation. Failure to identify these variations during aorto-iliac interventions could result in occlusion of renal artery, which in turn could lead to ischemic renal injury. Prior knowledge on existence of double renal arteries is important for urologists and radiologists during the planning and execution of surgical and interventional therapeutic procedures.
