Abstract: Fibroepithelial polyps of the ureter are rare benign mesothelial tumors. Most polyps are small; however, very rare large polyps have also been reported. Currently, most investigators encourage endoscopic management in these patients. Nevertheless, endoscopic resection can be difficult in patients with a long or large polypoid lesion. We describe our experience and laparoscopic technique for treatment of a symptomatic 42-year-old woman who presented with a 17-cm-long fibroepithelial polyp in the proximal ureter associated with ureteral obstruction. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of laparoscopic management of a large ureteral fibroepithelial polyp. © 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
