Ho, Christopher Chee Kong; Pezhman, Hafez; Praveen, Singam; Goh, Eng Hong; Lee, Boon Cheok; Zilkifli, Md Zainuddin & Isa, Mohamed Rose


Ketamine can be abused as a recreational drug, and there has been a recent surge in its usage. The effects of ketamine on the urinary system were unknown until the recent publication of a few case reports. Many doctors are still unaware of this new clinical entity, termed ketamine-associated ulcerative cystitis. We report a case that we encountered and discuss the diagnosis and disease management in addition to a review of the literature.
