Abstract

Limited cases of bladder teratomas in the pediatric population have been published. Often, these tumors will present as hematuria- which is regarded as benign. Because of this presentation, pediatric patients often are not diagnosed until years after their initial presentation. We present a 4-year-old female patient who presented initially at 6 months with progressive hematuria that ultimately ended up being diagnosed with a bladder teratoma. In conclusion, bladder teratomas should be included in the initial work-up when presenting with hematuria.
