Back pain for a long time. At first I didn’t pay much attention to it, but the pain in my back didn’t go away. So the 38-year-old freshman remembered the doctor without seeing the last resort. And when the young man went to get treatment for back pain, he found out that he had three kidneys, not two! There have been less than a hundred such incidents in medical history so far.
The incident took place in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She had a CT scan after seeing a doctor for back pain. It can be seen that he has a ‘slip disc’. Besides, the person who was caught in the CT scan has three kidneys. His left kidney is normal. But on the right side there are two kidneys and they are connected to each other. The pelvis also has two kidneys.
Doctors said the man had three kidneys but all of them were normal. Slip discs cause back pain. The kidneys are usually connected to the bladder through the urethra. But in the case of that person, the urethra came out of one of the twin kidneys and merged into the bladder. One ureter from the other side of the pair of kidneys merges with the urethra from the normal kidney. Then it goes and mixes in the bladder.
Doctors estimate that this extra kidney is formed when the person is in the womb. In general, people are not aware of the presence of these extra kidneys. In this case also, the person did not have any separate pain. If it weren’t for his slip disc, he probably would never have known his three kidneys. However, the occurrence of these three kidneys is very rare.
