Overview

Urinary tract infections have been described since ancient times with the first documented description in the Ebers Papyrus dated to 1550 BC. In 1836, Joseph Parrish published about interstitial cystitis by describing three cases of severe lower urinary tract symptoms without the presence of a bladder stone. Dr. Alexander Skene in 1887 used the term "interstitial cystitis" to describe the disease.
