Ureteral fibroepithelial polyp

Case contributed by Dr Maxime St-Amant


Known ureteral lesion. Follow-up.

Patient Data

Age: 45
Gender: Male

Very subtle endoluminal oval filling defect in the pelvic ureter. The patient was known to have a fibroepithelial polyp, which was similar on past examinations.

Case Discussion

Fibroepithelial polyp is a benign mesodermal tumor mainly seen in adults. Radiologically, the diagnosis is very hard to make. Excision is advised if hydroureteronephrosis is seen or if the patient is symptomatic since there is an overlap in appearance with transitional/urothelial cell carcinoma.
