Introduction:Lobation of kidney is a normal stage during development. Persistent foetallobulations of kidneysmay mimic inflammatory conditions like renal scars in computed tomography and also mistaken for a tumour. It may lead to errors in diagnosis and resulting in unwantedinvestigations and interventions.The present studys main emphasis was to look for foetallobulations in adult kidneys, study its genetic and embryological basis as well as describe its clinical significance. Materials and methods:This observational study includes 25 formalin-fixed cadavers,sourced from Subbaiah Institute of Medical Sciences, Shimoga, Karnataka, India, during the period of 2015Ã¢Â€Â“21. Total of 50 kidneys were observed for lobulations and data obtained was tabulated. Results:Of the 25 right and 25 left kidneys, five kidneys showed lobulations,amongwhich 2 were right and 3 left. Conclusion: In the present study, we found 8% of lobulations on rightsside and 12% on left side.Theknowledgeoflobulationsis of importance in distinguishing a pathological kidney from a normal sized healthy kidney.
