A rare association of accessory testicular artery along with double renal arteries and accessory renal vein was observed unilaterally on the left side. In addition, the left inferior phrenic artery was arising from the left gastric branch of the coeliac trunk. This was observed in the dissection of an adult male cadaver during a routine undergraduate teaching programme. In this case, the accessory left testicular artery originated superior to the normal testicular artery from the descending abdominal aorta immediately below the origin of the normal left renal artery. In addition to this artery, a variant renal artery was noted with three segmental branches before entering the hilum. The accessory renal vein emerged from the lower pole after the receiving testicular vein joined the main renal vein. The left inferior phrenic artery arose from the left gastric branch of the coeliac trunk. An anatomical description of this uncommon variation is presented in this case report, highlighting its clinical implications. (Folia Morphol 2011; 70, 4: 309-311).
