Ureteral fibroepithelial polyps are rare benign tumours. Sometimes an ureteric calculus may be seen, proximal to the polyp. We describe a case of fibroepithelial polyp (FEP) associated with a calculus in the distal part of the right ureter. To our knowledge this is the first ureteral FEP reported in the literature associated with a ureteral calculus distal to it. Aetiology, clinical features, diagnosis and therapy of fibroepithelial polyps are discussed in the light of the literature.
