ABSTRACT: The male gonadal arteries named as testicular arteries usually arises as lateral branches of abdominal aorta. Sometimes there may be variations in the origin of testicular artery and it may arise from renal, supra renal and lumbar artery. So the knowledge about the variations in testicular artery origins are essential for surgical procedures like renal vascular surgeries and renal transplantations.. Therefore study was designed to estimate the normal and abnormal origin of testicular artery. In the present study among 40 dissected cadavers we found two variations in the origin of testicular artery.
