Eosinophilic cystitis is a rare but distinct entity in patients presenting with bladder symptoms. We describe two cases of eosinophilic cystitis in whom no specific cause could be found with review of the literature. In one patient, the symptoms and radiological evaluation suggested a bladder tumour. However, transurethral resection of bladder lesion was done and histology revealed eosinophilic cystitis. The other patient presented with lower urinary tract symptoms of long duration and bladder biopsy revealed eosinophilic cystitis. Both patients were managed conservatively with anti-histamines and steroids and they improved well. The evaluation of the patient with eosinophylic cystitis should include cystoscopy and biopsy to establish histological diagnosis. After diagnosis the patients can be safely and successfully treated conservatively although recurrence is not uncommon.
