Urethra Papilloma


Presentation

  • In the case presented herein the polyp was demonstrated initially by sonography as a soft tissue mass arising at the base of the urinary bladder. The differential diagnosis of these lesions is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a case of verumontanum polyp in a 7-year-old boy who presented to us in October 2001 with terminal hematuria, dysuria, interrupted stream and suprapubic pain. The polyp was diagnosed by ultrasonography and cystourethrogram.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report the presentation and management of such a case of recurrent bulbar urethral poly in a young adult who had presented with obstructive voiding symptoms mimicking a urethral stricture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Urethral Bleeding
  • Back to Top Older patients ( 45 years) Urethral bleeding in this age group usually originates from the prostate gland. Patients should be referred to the Fast-track Haematuria clinic using the standard referral form.[camurology.org.uk]

Workup

  • Although the amount of blood in the urine may be different, the types of conditions that can cause the problem are the same, and require the same kind of workup or evaluation.[medicinenet.com]

Treatment

  • Treatment by orally minocyline 100 mg twice daily for 4 weeks was introduced. After the treatment, symptom was disappeared and nucleic acid amplification test of C. trachomatis in urine specimen turned to be negative.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The treatment of folk remedies is not a replacement for traditional methods. Gathering all information and making the clinical picture, a urologist may prescribe treatment in unconventional ways as a maintenance therapy.[syphilis.vsebolezni.com]
  • Conventional treatment has included transurethral resection or open cystotomy for complete removal of the polyp.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Current thoughts on diagnosis, associated urologic findings, treatment and possible cause are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We reviewed the literature to identify the presentation, diagnosis, treatment options and prognosis of these polyps.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • We reviewed the literature to identify the presentation, diagnosis, treatment options and prognosis of these polyps.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary carcinomas arising from a urethral caruncle are rare but are known to occur. [ 13 ] Prognosis If the diagnosis is correct, there is no associated mortality. Symptoms (if any) should subside with treatment.[patient.info]
  • Prognosis and Predictive Factors Urothelial papilloma is a benign tumor that may recur but does not progress. Rare cases of progression have been described in association with immunosuppressive therapy. [5][emedicine.medscape.com]

Etiology

  • The congenital nature suggests a benign neoplastic process as the etiologic factor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, there have been limited numbers of case reports including infectious etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The etiology of the metaplasia of the urothelium is still controversial. Congenital, irritative, infectious, obstructive and traumatic causes have been proposed [ 4 ].[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]
  • Urothelial papilloma tends to occur in younger patients and may be seen in children. [1] Etiology The risk factors for urothelial papilloma are similar to those of other urothelial neoplasms.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Etiology Urethral caruncles may develop from several simultaneous processes, as discussed in the Pathophysiology section.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Epidemiology It is uncommon, but is almost exclusively found in postmenopausal women. [ 1 ] A single case has been reported in a man. [ 2 ] Aetiology Aetiology is not well understood. Lack of oestrogen may be a factor.[patient.info]
  • Definition Urothelial papilloma is a benign exophytic neoplasm composed of a delicate fibrovascular core covered by normal-appearing urothelium. [1, 2] Epidemiology Urothelial papilloma has a low incidence; it represents 1-4% of bladder tumors.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Epidemiology Frequency Urethral caruncles are common in elderly postmenopausal women but are rare in girls or premenopausal or perimenopausal women. [5, 3] Urethral prolapse is similar in appearance, but is circumferential while caruncles are focal.[emedicine.medscape.com]
