Being a numerary anomaly of kidneys, accessory kidney is one of the rare congenital anomalies. It may be seen alone or in combination with other anomalies. Accesory kidney with megaureter is even rarer and only three cases have been reported in the literature. In this article, we presented a rare case of accessory kidney with megaureter in a 33 years old male patient, located cranial to the main kidney on radiologic imaging and discussed under the guidance of current literature. The patient admitted to our outpatient clinic with a complaint of pain in the right flank area. After radiological diagnosis, the patient was operated; approximately 2Ã3Ã2 cm accessory kidney was removed with its megaureter on the operation. The patient was discharged at postoperative 3rd day and his pathology specimen was reported as atrophic kidney and chronic ureteritis.
