Pyogenic granuloma, also known as lobular capillary hemangioma, is a benign vascular tumor rarely found in the genitourinary tract. Here, we present a case of a 6-year-old boy presenting with gross hematuria who was found to have a mass at the bladder base on ultrasound. Endoscopic resection was performed, revealing the base of the mass originating from the prostatic urethra. Pathology found pyogenic granuloma. This entity has not previously been reported to arise from the pediatric urethra and should be considered on the differential for children presenting with gross hematuria and those found to have bladder or urethral masses.
