Duplication of the renal arteries and anomalies are in the vascular variations and generally they were observed during dissection of the cadavers. In this study, we reported 2 cases of renal artery duplication under the light of current literature, diagnosed coincidentally while pre-operative evaluation for some other reasons was going on. Diagnosis and treatment of congenital arterial anomalies are developed in plan and step by step.The first step in diagnosis is clinical examination. Invasive(especially peroperatively) and non-invasive several methods help in diagnosis.
