Introduction: Kidneys are vital organ for multiple function in the body. Thereby kidney can be involved in various pathological processes. Nephrectomy is the treatment of choice in extreme and untreatable conditions including malignancies.
Aims and Objectives: In this study we aim to analyse the nephrectomy specimen received in terms of the various epidemiological factors and their clinico-histopathological correlation. The study also aims to give an account of currect trend of nephrectomy in the study population.
Materials and Methods: This is three year prospective and retrospective analysis of the consecutive nephrectomy specimen received in department of pathology with emphasis on epidemiological and clinic-pathological correlation.
Results: A total of 48 nephrectomy specimen received during the study period, 28(58%) were male and 20(42%) were females. We found that 40% of the cases constituted that of chronic pyelonephritis with or without end stage renal disease while renal cell carcinoma of clear cell type constituted 17% of the cases.
Conclusion: This study concludes that non neoplastic indications for nephrectomy constitute the major burden in our study population. These conditions if diagnosed in advance can be treated and nephrectomy can be avoided.

Keywords: Kidney, Nephrectomy, Epidemiology, Histopathology.
