Abstract

Ketamine bladder is a new clinical entity that may lead to irreversible damage to the urinary system. We report the severe lower urinary tract symptoms of four young patients referred to our urology unit who were found to have ulcerative cystitis secondary to ketamine abuse. The pathophysiology remains unclear and the treatment is symptomatic.
