Abstract

Two cases of ureteral polyp resected by a transurethral approach are presented. Case 1: A 70-year-old woman was referred to our clinic because of hydronephrosis incidentally found. Excretory urography demonstrated a filling defect with a long and round smooth contour in the left lower ureter without hydroureter. Urine cytology was negative for malignant cells. Under the clinical diagnosis of left ureteral polyp, polyp was resected transurethrally. The pathological diagnosis was fibroepithelial polyp. Case 2: A 59-year-old woman was referred to our clinic with a chief complaint of macroscopic hematuria. Excretory urography revealed a filling defect with a long and round smooth contour in the left upper ureter. Because urine cytology was negative for malignant cells, left ureteral polyp was suspected. After the operation by tranthurethral approach, the pathological diagnosis was fibroepithelial polyp. No intraoperative complication was observed in either case. Ureteral polyps resected by a transurethral approach are relatively rare. We reviewed and discussed 46 cases of ureteral polyp resected transurethrally, reported in Japan including our two cases.
