Fibroepithelial polyps of the urethra (FEPU) are rare entity in infancy. They are congenital benign tumors. Most patients present with acute retention, hematuria or intermittent bladder outlet obstruction. The treatment of choice is transurethral endoscopic resection. Histological study confirms the diagnosis and the prognosis is excellent.We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of three male patients with fibroepithelial polyps of the urethra that were diagnosed and treated in the department of pediatric surgery of Monastir. The diagnosis was based on voiding cystourethrogram and cystourethroscopy. The treatment was endoscopic resection and histology confirmed the diagnosis in all cases. © 2014 Pan African Urological Surgeons' Association.
