Hence venous variations go unnoticed. Thus here we report a case of right accessory renal vein.Case report We report here a case of accessory right renal vein arising from the hilum of the right kidney, inferior to the main renal vein and draining into the inferior venacava at its posterior aspect at about 1.5cm below the level of termination of the main renal vein.
