Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Malakoplakia is a granulomatous inflammatory disease affecting the genitourinary tract. It is rare in childhood. We report a case of malakoplakia presenting as multiple bladder polyps in an 11-year-old boy. The child did not respond to long-term antibiotic treatment, and subsequent surgical excision of the polyps resolved his problems. We propose surgical excision as an alternative form of management of this rare lesion.
