Abstract

Two cases of Fibroepithelial polyp in 47- and 74-year-old males complaining of gross hematuria are described. In the foreign literature, this polyp most commonly occurs in infancy and childhood in the first decade of life, but rarely occurs in aged male. Ten cases of this disease could be accumulated in the Japanese literatures, in which this polyp more commonly occurs in older generation compared with younger one. Urethral polyp should be considered in the differential diagnosis of gross hematuria.
