Abstract

A 5-year-old male patient with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma developed haemorrhagic cystitisgrade IV due to cyclophosphamide. Intravesical prostaglandin E-1 was administered safely and successfully. This case demonstrates that intravesical prostaglandin E-1 is a safe, easy and effective treatment method in resistant grade IV haemorrhagic cystitis.
