Patient 1
24-year-old female with frequency and bladder pain as long as she can remember. The patient is atypical in the sense,
that she has symptoms for 3-7 days and then a symptom-free interval of about the same length.
Symptoms are worst during winter time.
Urodynamics: detrusor overactivity, capacity 184 ml.
Antimuscarinics without effect.
Cystoscopy under general anaesthesia: bladder capacity of 800 ml.
Morphology: normal including detrusor, but not enough for mast cell staining.
