The renal fascia or Gerota's fascia is a layer of connective tissue encapsulating the kidneys and the suprarenal glands. The deeper layers below the renal fascia are, in order, the adipose capsule of the kidney (or "perirenal fat"), the renal capsule and finally the parenchyma of the renal cortex. The spaces about the kidney are typically divided into three compartments: the perinephric space and the anterior and posterior pararenal spaces.
