Variations of vessels in abdominal area are quite common. This case report illustrated a unique case of combined variations of bilateral renal arteries, right testicular and right inferior suprarenal arteries. During a routine dissection of a male cadaver, we found bilateral inferior accessory renal arteries. Both arose from abdominal aorta and entered the kidneys exactly at the lower pole. Moreover, right testicular artery did not directly originate from abdominal aorta. It formed common trunk with right inferior suprarenal artery. This common trunk arose from right main renal artery, while left testicular artery originated from abdominal aorta as usual. To best of our knowledge, the variation we discovered in an individual has not been issued in the literature before. Interestingly, variation such as in this case should be kept in mind due to its clinical and surgical significance.
