Abstract

Abstract Eosinophilic cystitis is a rare and uncommon inflammatory bladder disease, in which the pathophysiology is unclear; only a few cases of such disease induced by intravesical instillations have been described. We report a case of eosinophilic cystitis after intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) instillation for nonmuscle-invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. To our knowledge, this report is the first case of eosinophilic cystitis induced by intravesical BCG therapy.
