Abstract

Fibroepithelial polyps (FEPs) are the most common benign lesions of the ureter. However, FEPs of the ureter accompanied by calculi are rare. In this study, we reviewed our experiences with five children having FEP associated with ureteral calculi to define more clearly this entity and its outcome following observation.
