Bilateral supernumerary kidney is a very rare urogenital anomaly, with four cases reported in the literature thus far. To the best of our knowledge, bilateral supernumerary kidney in conjunction with horseshoe fusion anomaly is not reported till date. Herein, we report a 63-year-old male patient with persistent lower abdominal pain. Complete radiological evaluation including ultrasound, computed tomography scan, excretory urography and retrograde pyelography were done and the diagnosis was established. The dilemma faced in the diagnosis and management of patients with supernumerary kidneys is discussed.
