Abstract

Congenital bladder diverticula are rare anomalies of the bladder. Patients present with infection, hematuria, and/or urinary obstruction. We report on the case of a 12-year-old boy who developed gross hematuria and recurrent infection owing to a 12-cm bladder diverticulum. Robotic-assisted laparoscopic diverticulectomy was performed. We describe the first reported robotic-assisted laparoscopic diverticulectomy in a pediatric patient.
