Fibroepithelial polyps have a variety of proposed etiologies including: congenital development, infectious, inflammatory, or secondary to an obstructive process.[sup.5] The most common etiology in the pediatric population is thought to be congenital, and occurs primarily in the posterior urethra or bladder.[sup.6] The most common presenting symptoms include gross hematuria, urinary retention, straining to void, polyuria and lower abdominal pain.[sup.5]
The pathology report revealed right fibroepithelial polyps. Microscopically, the polyps were covered by normal urothelium.
A variant with predominant fibrosis and epithelial lining were labeled as Fibroepithelial polyp (Figure 2).
CONCLUSION: It appears that the entities such as Polypoidal endocervicitis, Endocervical polyp, and Fibroepithelial polyp belong to spectrum of a single entity in the pathogenesis process with Polypoidal endocervicitis as initial lesion, Endocervical polyp as intermediate lesion and Fibroepithelial polyp as a last stage in the pathogenesis process of same entity.
The histopathologic diagnosis was fibroepithelial polyp.
When our case first visited the office, the 'polyp' configuration led us to benign-looking differential diagnosis, including pigmented nevus, strangulated fibroepithelial polyps (acrochordons), or seborrheic keratosis, whereas BCC was not the straightforward consideration.
