This case study documents a unique bilateral variation of renal vasculature. Renal arterial duplications are relatively common, whereas multiple renal veins occur much less commonly. In this case report the human donor had bilateral arterial and venous duplication. This variation has not been previously reported in the literature. It is important for clinicians to be aware of renal vessel variations for surgical procedures, particularly trauma and transplantation, and in other conditions that may lead to hypertension and/or urologic disorders.
