A solitary polyp of the urethra is a rare benign fibroepithelial growth and has often been described in boys. Its occurrence in girls is exceptional. In the present paper, two children with solitary polyps of the urethra are presented and discussed. The first case was an 18-month-old boy with a posterior urethral polyp arising from the posterior urethra and extending to the bladder. It was excised by cystostomy because of an unsuccessful endoscopic removal attempt. The second case was a 2-year-old girl with an interlabial mass arising from the posterior wall of urethra and protruding from the external urethral meatus. It was excised transurethrally.
