Abstract (English) :
Introduction: fibroepithelial polyps of the ureter are benign and rare injuries of the urinary tract. Histologically composed of fibrous stroma covered by transitional urothelium. Presentation of the case: a 50-year-old female presented with pain in the right renal fossa and macroscopic hematuria, causing urinary retention, reason for admission to the emergency department. A cystoscopy revealed a vermiform lesion in the right ureter with protrusion through the meat us. Ureteroscopy and mechanical resection of the tumor lesion were performed. Histological examination reported fibroepithelial polyp of ureter. After 2 years of follow-up no recurrence was observed. Discussion: Because of the benign nature of this entity, nephroureterectomy is not considered a treatment option, endoscopic resection has reported successful results with a very low over all recurrence. The use of thulium laser has less complications than the use of holmiun laser in the resection of the fibroepithelial polyp of ureter. Conclusion: It is important to know the fibroepithelial polyp of ureter and to consider it as a differential diagnosis of uroepithelial tumors. Suspicion may prevent the performance of an unjustified radical procedure, which can be resolved favor ably with endoscopic procedures. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
