    Introduction: In our study, the aim was to study the pelvicalyceal system of human kidneys and its variation. The extensive knowledge of the anatomical pattern of pelvicalyceal of human kidneys will be beneficial to the radiologist and surgeons during the surgery like Nephrectomy, Radical nephrectomy, Ureteroscopy, and also has a role in the treatment of renal calculi like shock wave lithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, and nephrolithotripsy. Methods and Results: Pelvicalyceal system of 50 human kidneys were studied to note on different shapes by dissection method in Indian people and the commonest shape was bicalyceal 29 (58%) while tricalyceal 10 (20%), multi calyceal 9(18%) and ampullary pelvis/another group (absent of major calyx) showed 2 (4%). ..
