Abstract

Urethral polyps are a rare finding in children. Urethral fibroepithelial polyps are usually discovered in the first decade of life. They present with voiding dysfunction, obstructive and irritative urinary symptoms, and hematuria. They may be associated with other congenital urinary tract anomalies. Histopathologically, they are usually benign lesions with no tendency to recurrence and are treated by surgical ablation, fulguration or laser therapy. Diagnosis is made by sonography, voiding cystourethogram and cystoscopy. In this report, a rare case of posterior urethral polyp in an eight –year old male child is presented.
