Nephrogenic adenoma is a rare, benign urothelial tumour most frequently situated in the bladder. The presenting clinical signs are completely nonspecific and usually related to predisposing factors (infections, inflammation, bladder tumour). Only histological examination can provide the essential proof of the benign nature of this lesion. Endoscopic resection therefore has two objectives: diagnostic and therapeutic. The clinical course is characterized by recurrences.
