Pre-ureteral vena cava is a rare congenital anomaly that results from altered vascular development. During routine dissection of the abdominal cavity of a 62year old male cadaver in the department of Anatomy, a congenital anomaly of right preureteric vena cava was observed. The right ureter coursed behind inferior vena cava but anterior to right psoas major muscle and then emerged between the inferior vena cava and abdominal aorta. Inferior vena cava was formed anterior to the common iliac arteries which is very rare. The left ureter crossed in front of inferior venacava and then right common iliac artery and entered pelvis. Pelvic part of ureter was normal. The course of left ureter was normal. There was no obvious dilatation of renal pelvis. Imaging studies such as helical CT scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can clearly demonstrate the entire course of ureter.
