Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy has been widely accepted in living donor kidney transplantation. Ectopic kidneys are sometimes encountered during the living donor workup. Ectopic kidneys have been utilized successfully for kidney transplant. However, all these donor nephrectomies were performed by open surgery. We report a successful case of laparoscopic donor nephrectomy for ectopic kidney. The literature was reviewed and the technique points were emphasized.Copyright © 2012 Published by Elseiver Inc.
