The Department of Urology, Akita University School of Medicine.


A case of a giant fibroepithelial polyp of the ureter is presented. A 76-year-old woman was pointed out to have a tumorus lesion in the urinary bladder by ultrasonography. Intravenous pyelography showed a filling defect in the lower portion of the left ureter and bladder. Cystoscopy revealed a tumor with a smooth surface sticking out of the left ureteral orifice. After demonstration of benign ureteral polyp without malignancy by biopsy, ureteroscopic resection was performed. The stalk of the polyp was coagulated and removed with biopsy forceps under ureteroscopy. Pathological diagnosis was a fibroepithelial polyp. There were no findings of polyp recurrence or ureteral stenosis at 9 months after the operation. The diagnosis and management of fibroepithelial polyp are discussed.
