Knowledge of variations of renal vessels are important during operative, diagnostic and endovascular procedures of the abdomen and pelvic region and its importance have been greater than before because of the widespread development in the renal transplantation surgeries. During routine dissection of a 60 year aged female cadaver bilateral variations of renal vessels was observed. There were two renal arteries superior and inferior accompanied by two renal veins one anterior and one posterior to the artery on the right side. On the left side we found two renal arteries superior and inferior accompanied by two renal veins superior and inferior with a communicating vein connecting the superior and inferior renal veins on left side. Left gonadal vein drained into the inferior renal vein, which in turn drained into the inferior vena cava. Left suprarenal vein drained into the superior renal vein which further drained into the inferior vena cava. Such unusual and complex variations must be kept in mind during radiological and surgical procedures to prevent inadvertent injury to the related structures and also for their clinical implications
