Knowledge of the variations of the renal artery has grown in importance with increa­sing numbers of renal transplants, vascular reconstructions and various surgical and radio logic tech­niques being performed in recent years. We report the presence of bilateral triple renal arteries, dis­covered on routine dissection of a male cadaver. On the right side, one additional renal artery ori­ginated from the abdominal aorta (distributed to superior pole of the kidney) and one other ori­ginated from the right common iliac artery (distributed to lower pole of the kidney). On the left side, both additional renal arteries originated from the abdominal aorta. Our observation has been com­pared with variations described in the literature and their clinical importance has been emphasized.
