Holmium: yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Ho:YAG) laser for resection of bladder tumor in a pediatric patient

Bladder tumours are rare in children, with only 0.4% of cases occurring in the first 2 decades of life. Herein, a pediatric patient who underwent TUR-B with a holmium: yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Ho:YAG) laser is presented. Its histopathology was reported as urothelial papilloma
