Abstract

 

Bladder lesions are almost always malignant where only 5% turn out to be benign. Among the benign lesions, bladder lipomas are rarely reported in the literature. Typically, they are incidentally discovered, after endoscopic resection, during an investigation for hematuria or other urinary tract symptoms. This submucosal lesion must be differentiated from its malignant counterparts, such as liposarcoma or pelvic lipomatosis both of which have higher chance of recurrence and invasion when inadequately resected. We hereby report another rare case of an incidentally discovered bladder wall lipoma in a patient presenting with microscopic hematuria.
