Korean J Urol. 2014 Jun;55(6):430-3. doi: 10.4111/kju.2014.55.6.430. Epub 2014 Jun 16.


Here we describe two cases of papillary urothelial neoplasm of low malignant potential in adolescent boys. One case was a 16-year-old boy with a polypoid mass beside the right ureteral orifice and the other case was a 13-year-old boy with a papillary mass beside the left ureteral orifice. The initial presentation was hematuria in both cases and the bladder mass was detected by ultrasonography. Complete resection of the bladder tumor was performed by using an 11-Fr pediatric resectoscope. Follow-up has been performed with urine analysis, urine cytology, and bladder ultrasonography or cystoscopy every 3 months with no evidence of recurrence.
