A rare case of multiple renal arteries was found in a 78-year-old female cadaver undergoing routine dissection. The characteristic findings in the cadaver included the presence of four right and four left renal arteries with one common trunk (a total of nine renal arteries). This variation may represent an immature form of complicated development of the renal arteries.
