The study was made on morphometric parameters of human fetal kidney. The present study was carried out in the department of Anatomy, Government Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh. The material for the study consisted of 30 spontaneously aborted human fetal specimens from 12th to 28th weeks of gestational ages. The kidneys were taken from fetal specimens for morphological study. The measurements were done compass, scale and vernier caliper. The present study established a significant and positive correlation between the length,breadth and thickness of kidney. All the parameters increased with increase in gestational age maximum increase was observed from group B-C.Correlation of kidney with suprarenal gland were positive. Length and thickness of kidney was more than suprarenal length and thickness, whereas breadth of kidney was less than breadth of suprarenal gland in all the age groups. All the parameters of kidney increased from that of suprarenal by approximately two or more than two times from end of 1st trimester to 3rd trimester. A linear correlation of kidney parameters with suprarenal parameters was observed.
