cystitis


cystitis
n.
inflammation of the urinary bladder, often caused by infection (most commonly by the bacterium Escherichia coli). It is usually accompanied by the desire to pass urine frequently, with a degree of burning. More severe attacks are often associated with the painful passage of blood in the urine, which is accompanied by a cramplike pain in the lower abdomen persisting after the bladder has been emptied. An acute attack is treated by antibiotic administration and a copious fluid intake.
