Epithelial bladder tumours are rare in childhood. A case of bladder papilloma in a 12-year-old girl is reported. Emphasis is given to the important role of ultrasound in diagnosis. Endoscopic treatment was successful and no evidence of recurrence was found at 5-year follow-up. Exposure to a chemical environmental factor (volatile shoe adhesives) is suggested as a possible cause of the tumour.
