Eosinophilic cystitis (EC) is a non-neoplastic condition of the bladder associated with a strong female preponderance. Histologically, it is characterized by dense eosinophilic infiltrate in the mucosa and wall of the bladder. EC is associated with various benign and malignant genitourinary conditions. The present study was carried out to study the clinicopathologic features of EC in males. Materials and methods:A retrospective study of all males patients diagnosed with eosinophilic cystitis between 2009 and 2015 was analysed. The histopathological features were correlated with clinical and cystoscopic findings. Results: Twenty four males were diagnosed to have eosinophilic cystitis. Common presenting symptoms were haematuria and lower urinary tract symptoms. Associated genitourinary conditions included benign prostatic hyperplasia, renal cell carcinoma, prostatic adenocarcinoma, transitional cell carcinoma, urethral strictures, calculi and hydroureteronephrosis. The most common cystoscopy finding was erythematous mucosa. Biopsy findings revealed patients in acute and chronic phase along with few showing mixed features. These patients were managed with antibiotics, antihistaminics and steroids along with treatment of the associated condition.
