Özet

It has been reported that paravesical suture granuloma after inguinal hernia repair may simulate a bladder, pelvic, or Urachal malignancy in adults, and therefore, these lesions often pose a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. However, such a case has not been reported in the pediatric age group to date. The authors report a paravesical suture granuloma after left inguinal hernia repair in a child that mimics a local recurrence of the totally excised immature sacrococcygeal teratoma.
