The present paper describes the study of the drainage pattern of right testicular vein (RTV). Forty two cadavers were dissected on both sides and the anatomy of the drainage pattern of RTV was studied. The drainage pattern of RTV in 41 cadavers were found to be normal i.e into inferior vene cava (IVC). An anomalous drainage of RTV into right renal vein (RRV) was identified in a 52 year old male cadaver. The anatomical knowledge of normal and abnormal drainage pattern of testicular veins is important for vascular surgeons. Knowledge of anomalies of renal vessels is of great surgical interest, as it may check accidental manipulation during renal surgeries which could otherwise lead to tissue necrosis or systemic hypertension.
