Interstitial cystitis is a painful bladder condition, which has been recognized for over 100 years but has still been classified as idiopathic. In the search for causes and treatments, atopy (allergy) has been suggested. No large clinical observations have been reported to date. We have evaluated a large group of interstitial cystitis patients for allergic contributions and present the results in this clinical communication for the consideration of the reader.
