Once thought to be rare, interstitial cystitis (IC) is now believed to have a markedly higher prevalence. This potentially devastating disease is also known as painful bladder syndrome (PBS) and can significantly impact quality of life. It is diagnosed by its symptoms, as there are no proven pathological findings. Unfortunately, the symptoms of IC/PBS overlap those of other common disease states such as overactive bladder, endometriosis, urinary tract infection, and prostatitis, which… Expand
Interstitial cystitis: an unsolved enigma.
TLDR
Doctors should always keep in mind the diagnosis of PBS/IC in patients presenting with chronic urinary symptoms after excluding other more common diseases, and it is important to rule out diseases that have a similar clinical picture but definite therapies and worse prognosis if left untreated. Expand
Diagnosis and Management of Interstitial Cystitis/ Painful Bladder Syndrome.
TLDR
Recent data and current concepts of interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome are discussed and a new nomenclature and classification system is proposed that may prove to be worthwhile pending future studies. Expand
Methods and incentives for the early diagnosis of bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis.
TLDR
A critical review of methods and means to approach the diagnosis of bladder pain syndrome, incorporating the classic presentation of IC as a separate phenotype is presented. Expand
A Review on Interstitial Cystitis Syndrome (ICS)
Interstitial cystitis (IC) is an irritative bladder syndrome of multifactorial aetiology and is said to be one of the several conditions that causes bladder pain, which is most commonly seen in womenExpand
Bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis. Studies on classic BPS/IC, ESSIC type 3C, with special reference to the role of nitric oxide
TLDR
The spectrum of inflammatory markers in the bladder wall of BPS Type 3C patients indicates that the inflammation is similar to what is seen in certain diseases believed to be of autoimmune origin, which opens up novel research avenues with expectations for new pharmacological targets for the treatment of this condition. Expand
Interstitial cystitis: an enigmatic disorder of unclear aetiology
TLDR
Due to multiple definitions and diagnostic criteria used, the prevalence of IC varies widely throughout the world and may also reflect racial/ethnic differences. Expand
Screening, Treatment, and Management of Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome
TLDR
The use of sacral neuromodulation for the symptomatic treatment of refractory interstitial cystitis and its associations with other chronic disease and pain syndromes are investigated. Expand
Association of bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis with urinary calculus: a nationwide population-based study
TLDR
BPS/IC was found to be significantly associated with prior UC regardless of stone location; the adjusted ORs of kidney calculus, ureter calculus, bladder calculus, and unspecified calculus when compared to controls were 1.58 and 1.84, respectively. Expand
Bladder pain syndrome/ interstitial cystitis
The European Society for the Study of Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome (ESSIC) has recently suggested a change of the name to bladder pain syndrome (BPS) to differentiate it from otherExpand

Prostatitis, interstitial cystitis, chronic pelvic pain, and urethral syndrome share a common pathophysiology: lower urinary dysfunctional epithelium and potassium recycling.
TLDR
The goal of this review was to place new research findings into a broad and evidence-based perspective that will help the physician to diagnose IC readily and to direct therapy that relieves the patient’s symptoms and results in a real impact on disease outcome. Expand
Interstitial cystitis: urgency and frequency syndrome.
  • J. Metts
  • Medicine
  • American family physician
  • 2001
TLDR
Oral treatments of interstitial cystitis include pentosan polysulfate, tricyclic antidepressants and antihistamines, and intravesicular therapies include hydrodistention, dimethyl sulfoxide and heparin, or a combination of agents. Expand
Interstitial cystitis: early diagnosis, pathology, and treatment.
TLDR
It is believed that the finding of multiple petechia-like hemorrhages on the second distention of the bladder is the hallmark of interstitial cystitis, and that a reduced bladder capacity and a Hunner's ulcer represent a different (classic) stage of this disease. Expand
How do patients with interstitial cystitis present?
TLDR
Early interstitial cystitis presents variably and usually with only a single symptom of urgency/frequency, nocturia or pain, and should be considered when laboratory documentation of alternate diagnoses is lacking or patients fail to respond to therapy for alternate diagnoses. Expand
Increased prevalence of interstitial cystitis: previously unrecognized urologic and gynecologic cases identified using a new symptom questionnaire and intravesical potassium sensitivity.
TLDR
A PUF symptom scale that gives balanced attention to urinary urgency/frequency, pelvic pain, and symptoms associated with sexual intercourse is designed and appears to be a valid tool for detecting IC in urologic patients suspected of having IC and gynecologic patients with pelvic pain. Expand
Interstitial Cystitis: Epidemiology and Clinical Presentation
  • C. Parsons
  • Medicine
  • Clinical obstetrics and gynecology
  • 2002
TLDR
IC will be presented as a relatively common disorder that often can be recognized in its early stages and treated with a high measure of success, and will be present as a continuum rather than as a disorder with a fixed presentation. Expand
Treatment approaches for interstitial cystitis: multimodality therapy.
TLDR
A proposed pathophysiology describing a cascade of events, including epithelial dysfunction, mast cell activation, and neurogenic inflammation, is presented and multimodality therapy regimens have been developed that treat all components of this cascade. Expand
Prevalence of symptoms related to interstitial cystitis in women: a population based study in Finland.
TLDR
The prevalence of urinary symptoms corresponding to probable interstitial cystitis is 450/100.000 (95% confidence interval 100 to 800), which is an order of magnitude higher than previously reported. Expand
Intravesical potassium sensitivity in patients with prostatitis.
TLDR
The rate of positive potassium sensitivity test results in patients with prostatitis is almost identical to that reported in those with interstitial cystitis (84% and 79%, respectively), suggesting that prost atitis and interstitial Cystitis may be a continuum of lower urinary epithelial dysfunction.

TLDR
In this study, nonsurgical treatment for interstitial cystitis resulted in a marked improvement in symptoms that had not improved with surgery, and gynecologists should not proceed to hysterectomy in patients with chronic pelvic pain. Expand
