Laparoscopic surgery in patients with spinal deformity are always challenging to surgeons due to unpredictable position of viscera inside abdomen and lack of working space within the abdomen. We are reporting a case report of laparoscopic simple nephrectomy in a patient with severe kyphoscoliosis who presented with symptoms of flank pain and imaging showed non-functioning kidney.
