Bottom Line: We present a case of a patient with supranumerary kidney diagnosed after laparoscopic radical nephrectomy.The latter right nephrectomy was performed.Despite the scarceness of this anomaly, a thorough interpretation of images obtained during investigative procedures can provide a clue about the presence of this rare entity.

ABSTRACT
We present a case of a patient with supranumerary kidney diagnosed after laparoscopic radical nephrectomy. Urinary leakage, an unusual complication that appeared postoperatively, led to complementary examination and making the right diagnosis. The reevaluation of the preoperative CT (computed tomography) in enhancement phase and the new CT scan confirmed the presence of a real accessory organ connected to the main unit with a small bridge of tissue. The latter right nephrectomy was performed. Despite the scarceness of this anomaly, a thorough interpretation of images obtained during investigative procedures can provide a clue about the presence of this rare entity.

Figure 0008: Line diagram depicting the case.

Mentions: The average age at diagnosis in all reported cases was 36 years. The most common complaints were pain, fever, hypertension, and a palpable abdominal mass. Subsequent pathologic conditions affecting supernumerary kidneys include hydronephrosis, pyonephrosis, calculi, tumors, or para-aortic mass [1, 4–8]. Various types of supernumerary kidney have been described [2]. Our case is depicted by the line diagram (Fig. 5).
