Abstract

We report about a 25-year-old patient with transnasal ketamine abuse over years presenting with severe irritative urinary dysfunction (imperative urinary urgency, pollakisuria, dysuria) and severe alguria. Cystoscopia showed ketamine-induced vesicopathy with errosive cystitis; other etiologies could be excluded. Despite serious effort the patient was not motivated for abstinence from ketamine. After two ineffecient therapies with botulinum toxin A (200 and 400 I. E.) injected into the bladder, a prostate preserving cystectomia and ileum neobladder were mandatory.
