Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) frequently manifests as urinary tract disease, most commonly in the form of lupus nephritis. Bladder involvement in the disease course takes a subclinical form and may affect both children and adults. Lupus cystitis can precede SLE diagnosis and may present with very unspecific urinary and digestive tract symptoms or no symptoms at all. The exact mechanism of bladder inflammation in lupus is not fully understood; however, histopathological studies suggest a possible role of immune complex-mediated small vessel vasculitis. Lupus cystitis is a rare SLE manifestation, but poses a challenge for physicians, due to its complex diagnostics and treatment.
