Interstitial Cystitis - Nomenclature

Nomenclature

Originally called interstitial cystitis, this disorder was renamed to interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome in the 2002-2010 timeframe. In 2007, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) began using the umbrella term Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndromes (UCPPS) to refer to pain syndromes associated with the bladder (i.e., interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome, IC/BPS) and the prostate gland (i.e., Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome).

In 2008, terms currently in use in addition to IC/BPS include painful bladder syndrome, bladder pain syndrome and hypersensitive bladder syndrome, alone and in a variety of combinations. These different terms are being used in different parts of the world. The term "interstitial cystitis" is the primary term used in ICD-10 and MeSH.
