    ABSTRACT: Nephrogenic adenoma is an uncommon, benign urothelial lesion. Risk factors for nephrogenic adenoma include trauma, chronic inflammation, immunosuppression and radiation. We characterized nephrogenic adenoma in the pediatric augmented bladder. We reviewed the records of patients diagnosed with nephrogenic adenoma from January 2000 to March 2010. Those with prior bladder augmentation were studied further. Data were retrospectively obtained on pathological characteristics, cystoscopic findings, recurrence patterns and presentation. Ten patients with ileal bladder augmentation and nephrogenic adenoma were identified. The underlying pathological condition was myelodysplasia in 7 patients, sacral agenesis in 2 and bladder exstrophy in 1. Concomitant procedures were a continent channel in 9 patients, ureteroneocystostomy in 5 and bladder neck reconstruction in 7. Mean time to the discovery of nephrogenic adenoma was 9.2 years. During that time a total of 221 surveillance cystoscopies were performed in patients with bladder augmentation. The diagnosis was made by surveillance cystoscopy in 7 cases, at surgery for bladder stone in 2 and by cystoscopy for urinary incontinence in 1. Nephrogenic adenoma was identified along the floor in 5 cases, near the channel entrance in 3 and adjacent to the enteric anastomosis in 2. Six patients returned for surveillance with recurrence identified in 2. The longest recurrence free interval was 27 months. Nephrogenic adenoma is not uncommon in the augmented bladder and it is often asymptomatic. The lesions tend to develop at sites that may be prone to chronic catheterization injury. Recurrent lesions are not unusual.

    ABSTRACT: The authors report a multifocal nephrogenic adenoma of urinary bladder in an 11-y-old girl. Nephrogenic adenomas occur almost exclusively in the urinary bladder in children and are rarely multifocal. Less than 30 cases of nephrogenic adenomas have been reported in children and very few of these are multifocal. This report aims at drawing attention to this rare entity in children.

    ABSTRACT: Nephrogenic adenoma is an uncommon urothelial lesion that has been associated with chronic inflammation and surgical manipulation of the urinary tract. Several cases of vesical nephrogenic adenoma in patients with a history of renal transplantation have been reported. The present case report reviewed the management of recurrent nephrogenic adenoma in a 6-year-old boy with history of renal transplantation 3 years before the diagnosis of nephrogenic adenoma. After multiple surgical resections for recurrent nephrogenic adenoma, the lesion finally resolved with long-term treatment with ibuprofen (Motrin) and trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole (Septra).
