Abstract

Although fibroepithelial polyps have been considered to be congenital, we think that some of these polyps could develop after birth because all of our patients first showed clinical symptoms in adulthood. Because fibroepithelial polyps in adults are rare, some of these cases can be misdiagnosed as urothelial neoplasms or reactive conditions. Recognition of the precise histologic features of fibroepithelial polyp can facilitate its correct diagnosis.
