Abstract

Polypoid cystitis is a benign exophytic mucosal lesion of the bladder. Differentiating it from papillary transitional cell carcinoma is difficult due to their similar characteristics. Although indwelling catheter is the main well-known cause of polypoid cystitis, some case reports unrelated to catheterization have been described. However, the radiological findings of polypoid cystitis have rarely been reported. We hereby describe polypoid cystitis in a 20-year-old man without a history of catheterization along with the computed tomographic findings.


  • Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:
    Polypoid cystitis without history of catheterization may occur in the urinary bladder. There are no specific findings and manifestations to differentiate it from transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder.
