Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To present a rare case of a benign polyp in a child. Very few cases of urinary tract fibroepithelial polyps in the bladder are reported in the international literature and they are even less common in children. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A 14-year-old boy presented at the Urology Department of "Elpis" Hospital complaining of painless macroscopic hematuria during the last six months. The patient did not report previous urinary tract disorders. After a thorough laboratory investigation, which included urinalysis, urine culture, ultrasonography, intravenous pyelography and cystoscopy the presence of an exophytic papillary tumor in the bladder was identified. The lesion was removed transurethrally. RESULTS: The biopsy set the diagnosis of fibroepithelial polyp, which is a rare benign neoplasm and occurs in patients of nearly all ages. Polyps are located usually in the ureteropelvic junction, the upper third of the ureter and the posterior urethra. They are rarely found in the bladder, especially in the childhood.
