Nephrogenic adenoma (NA) is a benign adenomatous lesion of the urinary tract. Long considered to be a rare phenomenon, case series from the renal transplant population suggest that it may be much more common within this group. Although NA is considered to be a lesion with low premalignant potential, hematuria, lower urinary tract symptoms, and recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) are frequently observed in the context of NA. Furthermore, after resection of NA, lesion recurrence and persistent symptoms are frequently observed. Here we present the case of a 69-year-old male renal transplant recipient with NA and associated recurrent UTIs despite cystoscopic resection of the primary lesion. This case is illustrative of the clinical impact of NA and the need for ongoing work into the development of strategies to manage this problematic phenomenon.
