Inverted papilloma of the prostatic urethra is an especially rare finding. A 75-year-old man with urinary retention wished to proceed with a holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) and was found to have a mass arising from his prostate vs bladder on preoperative imaging. Cystourethroscopy revealed the mass arising from the median lobe of the prostate. After transurethral resection and frozen analysis confirmed the benign pathology of an inverted papilloma, the patient subsequently underwent a successful HoLEP during the same surgical setting. Images of this rare prostatic mass are presented to increase urologist recognition and to assist management during HoLEP.
