The present work was intended to be a revision of our series of Eosinophilic Cystitis and we have found that, from one single anatomicopathological picture three different clinical pictures emerge with different treatments and prognosis. Group I is constituted by young people and children with a profuse background of atopy and parasitosis, which develop mictional syndrome and haematuria and show good response to steroids. Group II includes middle-aged women, with development of chronic recurrent cystopaty and a poor response to treatment. Group III comprises elderly patients with a history of vesical injury or chronic vesical irritation, with no separate clinical signs and symptoms and requiring no treatment.
