Interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome: Appropriate diagnosis and management – Source: Journal of Women’s Health, Oct 2007

By JR Dell • www.ProHealth.com • October 18, 2007


Interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS) is characterized by urinary frequency, urgency, and pelvic pain in the absence of any other identifiable pathology.

Initial identification of IC/PBS is challenging, as patients may have a range of symptoms that overlap with other disorders, including urinary tract infection (UTI).

These patients may be treated empirically with antibiotics; however, many patients with such symptoms are actually culture negative and are later diagnosed with IC/PBS.

This review describes the importance of recognizing the symptom overlap between IC/PBS and UTI and focuses on approaches to the diagnosis and management of IC/PBS.

Physicians can improve patient care by considering IC/PBS early in the differential diagnosis.
