Knowledge of variations of blood vessels in and around the renal hilar region is of utmost importance during operative, diagnostic and endovascular procedures in the abdomen. This report describes the variations found in the course of the left ovarian artery. The variation was found during routine dissection in an approximately 60 years old cadaver. The left ovarian artery took its origin from the abdominal aorta at the level of renal artery, passed upwards between the left renal artery and the renal vein and passed down after hooking around the left renal vein. The knowledge of variations of renal and gonadal vessels is important for surgeons doing kidney transplants and for the radiologists doing radiological procedures.
