This is a case where multiple anomalies of the posterior abdominal wall arteries were found. These were accessory renal, a pre-hilar division of the renal, a unilateral origin of the inferior phrenic artery from the renal and aberrant suprarenal arteries. The accessory renal and the pre-hilar branch of the renal resembled polar arteries that supplied the upper and lower poles and similar segments of both kidneys.
