Among the 53 KC patients, 26 patients underwent full clinical examination and cystoscopy with hydrodistention, and 3 patients refused bladder biopsy
. Table 2 lists the clinical information and serum Ig levels.
These are a bladder epithelium injury, urethral injury during BCG instillation, deep bladder tumor resection, pelvic radiation, severe cystitis and bladder biopsy

. If no muscle specimen was retrieved, request a repeat biopsy before deciding on treatment.
