Congenital urethral polyps may cause hematuria, various degrees of outflow obstruction and display a variety of, mostly nonspecific micturition abnormalities in young boys and infants, and should be considered and investigated when recurrent or persistent hematuria and voiding disturbances are encountered. Voiding cystography is the best available diagnostic method to detect urethral polyps. Following diagnosis, prompt complete resection of polyp is indicated. Resolution of signs and symptoms and excellent prognosis are the rule in most of the reported cases. In view of the rarity of this significant pathological condition, we present our experience with 6 children who suffered from urethral polyps and outline the principles of diagnostic evaluation and management of the child with urethral polyp.
