    Accessory renal artery has been associated with vascular complications, arterial thrombosis and renal artery stenosis. Aims To study the variations in branching pattern of renal artery in dissected kidney specimens. Methods The present retrospective observational study was conducted in Department of Anatomy at Dr Moopen’s Medical College using 60 formalin fixed dissected kidney specimen for 5 years from 2017-2022. Kidney specimen was dissected and the variation in the branching pattern of renal artery was noted in detail. The percentage of the different types of renal artery variations was calculated. Results Among 60 kidney specimen, 5(8%) specimens had Accessory renal artery, 2(3%) specimen had Inferior polar artery, 1(1.6%) specimen had Superior polar artery and 9 (15%) Specimen showed pre hilar division Conclusions This variation of accessory renal artery has been due to persistence of lateral mesonephric artery and knowledge about this variation is important during renal surgeries
