prognosis is usually benign, but rare severe complications, such as complete bladder fibrosis requiring bladder augmentation or cystectomy, may occur.
The aim of this paper is to draw attention to the presenting symptoms and the radiologic evaluation of eosinophilic cystitis
Extra-intestinal manifestations such as eosinophilic cystitis
, eosinophilic splenitis and hepatitis, obstructive jaundice have been described along with.
(EC) is a rare inflammatory disorder.
These include eosinophilic cystitis
, herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection, epidural anaesthesia, anti-cholinergic or sympathomimetic agents, urinary tract infection (UTI), and postpartum, postoperative and psychogenic causes (Table 3).
Noninfectious cystitis includes interstitial cystitis, eosinophilic cystitis
, drug-induced cystitis, and postsurgical necrobiotic granulomas.
Objective: Eosinophilic cystitis
(EC) is a histological diagnosis that can affect all layers of bladder, characterized with eosinophilic infiltration, inflammatory cells, mucosal fibrosis, and necrosis in muscular layer.
Our experience with 3 patients shows that the initial diagnosis of eosinophilic cystitis
may not be easily made, and that the lesions produced may mask other disease processes.
Other conditions which show eosinophiluria include eosinophilic cystitis
, (5) atheroembolic renal disease, (9) and schistosomiasis.
2,3] Eosinophilic cystitis
(EC) is a rare inflammatory disease of the bladder with unknown etiology, characterized by numerous eosinophilic infiltrations of the bladder.

The presence and diagnostic relevance of Charcot-Leyden crystals (CLCs) in eosinophilic cystitis
(EC) was reported in detail recently.
