Abstract

The thoracic kidney is the rarest form of an ectopic kidney that usually present on the left thorax
and twice more common in males. No case has been reported from Nepal and very few cases are
reported worldwide. We report a 24 years-old female with right thoracic kidney with Bochdalek
hernia diagnosed incidentally. We have included clinico-radiological and surgical findings of the
case with a review of the literature.
