Case Reports

We report a case of remote spontaneous rupture of urinary bladder following cystourethroscopy with hydrodistention and a bladder biopsy in a patient with interstitial cystitis. This required abdominal exploration with cystorrhaphy. This case emphasizes a unique and dangerous complication of this procedure in a patient with interstitial cystitis.
