Transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder is a rare entity in childhood. We report on a 9-year-old girl with transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder who presented with gross hematuria. Ultrasonography revealed a papillary lesion in the bladder, and the diagnosis was confirmed by cistoscopy. Complete transurethral resection of the lesion was performed and follow-up with urine cytology, vesical ultrasound and transurethral cystoscopy at 4 years showed no evidence of recurrence.
