Angioleiomyoma of urethra: A case report.

Amir RA, Sheikh SS - Int J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: We herein present a case of a 72 year old man who presented with gross hematuria.Differential diagnoses of a urethral polypoid lesion, including inflammatory and neoplastic conditions are discussed.This rare case reports an elderly patient with angioleiomyoma in an extremely unusually encountered location and presenting with unusual symptoms of gross hematuria that did not recur after resection of the lesion.

fig0005: Low power view exhibiting spindle cell proliferation (arrow) and scattered in between thick-walled blood vessels (arrowhead).

Mentions: Pathological examination showed no significant histopathologic findings in the bladder biopsies. The prostatic tissue exhibited benign prostatic hyperplasia. The prostatic urethral polyp showed a well circumscribed nodule exhibiting scattered thick walled blood vessels that were surrounded by spindle cell proliferation (Fig. 1). The cells were elongated, had eosinophilic cytoplasm, bland appearing nuclei, and lacked any cytologic atypia or increased mitotic activity (Fig. 2A). In addition, there was underlying mild chronic inflammation. The spindle cell proliferation and the smooth muscle walls of the blood vessels were strongly positive for Actin (Fig. 2B). The histologic features were consistent with an angioleiomyoma.
