A Special Case of Renal Duplication Diagnosed on CT Imaging
Abstract: Renal duplication or supernumerary kidney (SK) is a rare anomaly, poorly documented. It is often discovered fortuitously or after complications. Its preoperative diagnosis is difficult. We hereby report the case of a left supernumerary kidney discovered upon thoracic-abdominal pelvic CT staging in a 50-year-old woman monitored for squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix.
