Vascular anomalies increase the difficulty during live donor nephrectomy. We herein report a left-sided retroperitoneoscopic living donor nephrectomy performed in a donor with a duplicated inferior vena cava (IVC). Computed tomography angiography provided accurate delineation of the venous anatomy and allowed preoperative planning. The duplicated IVC was clipped and divided just below its confluence with the left renal vein. The length of the left renal vein was sufficient for anastomosis in the recipient, and the recipient's serum creatinine was 1.21% on day 7. The donor made an uneventful recovery. Duplicated IVC is not a contraindication for left retroperitoneoscopic donor nephrectomy.
