Image of unusual accessory renal arterial vessel

The renal vessel (Anomalous A.) arose distal to the right kidney, from the spermatic artery and, in a recurrent loop, entered the parenchyma of the right kidney.

The vessel joined an interlobar artery. This is extremely unusual because renal arteries are typically end-arteries.
