Summaries for Interstitial Cystitis

NIH Rare Diseases : 52 Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic condition that causes painful urinary symptoms. Symptoms and severity can vary. Some people may have only mild discomfort, or feel tenderness or pressure in the bladder or pelvis. Others may experience intense bladder pain, urgent or frequent needs to urinate, or pain during sexual intercourse. Symptoms may be constant, or they may come and go. Some people with IC have Hunner's ulcers (areas of inflammation on the bladder wall, identified by cytoscopy ). The exact cause of IC is not known. While the symptoms are similar to those of a bladder infection, IC is not an infection. It occurs more commonly in women, and in people with other chronic pain disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome or fibromyalgia . There is no cure for IC, but there are treatment options to help relieve the symptoms. No single treatment works for all people with IC. Often, people try different treatments or combinations of treatments before finding something that works. Treatment options may include lifestyle changes , oral or topical medications, bladder instillations , neuromodulation therapy , Botox injections in the bladder muscles, and surgery (in rare cases). Without treatment, IC can affect a person's sleep, daily activities, and social life.

MalaCards based summary : Interstitial Cystitis, also known as painful bladder syndrome, is related to cholera and urethral syndrome, and has symptoms including pain and other symptoms associated with female genital organs, mittelschmerz and unspecified symptom associated with female genital organs. An important gene associated with Interstitial Cystitis is NGF (Nerve Growth Factor), and among its related pathways/superpathways are CREB Pathway and PAK Pathway. The drugs Desogestrel and Clindamycin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include prostate, testes and brain, and related phenotypes are abnormality of the menstrual cycle and abnormality of the urethra

MedlinePlus : 42 Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a condition that causes discomfort or pain in the bladder and a need to urinate frequently and urgently. It is far more common in women than in men. The symptoms vary from person to person. Some people may have pain without urgency or frequency. Others have urgency and frequency without pain. Women's symptoms often get worse during their periods. They may also have pain with sexual intercourse. The cause of IC isn't known. There is no one test to tell if you have it. Doctors often run tests to rule out other possible causes of symptoms. There is no cure for IC, but treatments can help most people feel better. They include Distending, or inflating, the bladder Bathing the inside of the bladder with a drug solution Oral medicines Electrical nerve stimulation Physical therapy Lifestyle changes Bladder training In rare cases, surgery NIH: National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

KEGG : 36 Interstitial cystitis (IC), also referred to as bladder pain syndrome (BPS), is a chronic non-infectious inflammatory condition characterized by recurring discomfort, pain or pressure in the bladder and the surrounding pelvic region. IC/BPS most often affect females compared with males. The affected individuals experience urinary frequency and urgency. The duration of irritative symptoms associated with unpleasant sensation are longer than six weeks duration. At present, there are two major subtypes of IC/BPS: those with or without Hunner lesion, which are also known as ulcerative or non-ulcerative IC/BPS, respectively.
