Abstract

Purpose So far, studies have not clearly identified infectious agents as an etiological factor for interstitial cystitis (IC). Specific microbiological diagnosis for detecting the pathogen with higher sensitivity in IC may decrease the treatment costs and increase psychosocial health of the patients.
