Urolithiasis due to renal dystopia and vascular anomalies
Introduction. Variations in the urogenital vascular anomalies in the abdomen are common. However, they warrant attention due to their importance in operative, diagnostic, and endovascular procedures.
Aim. The aim of this article is to show an example of a patient with rare kidney and vessels anomalies. We want to prove that those anomalies contributed to development of urolithiasis in this case.
Description of the case. During dissection of abdomen in a female cadaver, unique vascular anomalies and a position disorder of both kidneys were observed.
Conclusion. Vessel abnormalities were congenital and appeared simultaneously with renal dystopia. Both anomalies could contribute to stone formation and nephritis. Understanding of the urogenital anatomical variations and their relations to adjacent structures is significant during surgical and radiological procedures.
