Double inferior vena cava (IVC) is a rare developmental anomaly of IVC with a prevalence rate of 0.2-0.3%. Preoperative identification of major vascular anomalies is of paramount importance for a retroperitoneal surgeon. In addition, more anomalies are to be expected in those situations. Radiological studies in similar cases may be reported as retroperitoneal lymph nodes or masses if the radiologist is unaware. In this case report, a patient with bilateral testicular tumor with double IVC who underwent extensive retroperitoneal and pelvic lymph node dissection is described for rarity of the condition and technical difficulties associated with such a condition.
