Abstract:

A supernumerary renal artery is a common arterial variation that warrants consideration in a variety of urologic and retroperitoneal operations. Hydronephrosis is very common and is usually due to physiological or pathological obstruction of the urinary tract. However, hydronephrosis caused by supernumerary renal arteries is very rare. We report the case of a 21-year-old female with hydronephrosis caused by crossing of the posterior ureter by the inferior polar renal artery that was treated with laparoscopic ureteral pyeloplasty and had a good recovery.
