Inflammatory pseudotumors of the bladder are rare in children. We describe a 7-day-old male neonate with inflammatory pseudotumor of the bladder. He presented with a 3-day history of macroscopic hematuria. Ultrasonography, computed tomography and cystoscopy showed an intravesical mass arising from the right lateral wall. Pathologic findings obtained by open excision revealed that the tumor had spindle-shaped cells without significant atypia infiltrating into submucosal fibrous tissue. There has been no evidence of recurrent tumor 12 months post-operatively. To our knowledge our case is the first presentation in a neonate among the reported pediatric cases.
