Nephrogenic adenoma of the urethra: an unusual cause of hematuria in the child

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors describe a 9-year-old boy who had an accident with his bicycle. He presented with hematuria a few weeks later, and cystoscopy results showed a polypod lesion near the veru montanum. The lesion was resected, and histologic examination showed a nephrogenic adenoma (NA), which recurred 6 years later with hematuria. NA is a rare lesion in a child's urethra and can be a source of hematuria.
