Introduction: Interstitial cystitis
Interstitial cystitis is an odd disease that is difficult to diagnose. It causes pain and irritation to the bladder and pelvic area,
and thereby causes various urination symptoms.
Its cause is unclear, but may be autoimmune,
or perhaps only some cases are autoimmune.
Diagnosis of IC is often by ruling out all other possible
causes of bladder symptoms.
Confirmation of a diagnosis is difficult, and the most compelling
evidence for diagnosis is often from surgery and biopsy,
rather than any specific urine or blood tests.
