The urology literature has voluminous articles bearing on the epidemiology of interstitial cystitis (IC). For example, the Hanno and Wein (1987) review of IC cites 12 articles; Messing’s (1984) chapter on IC in Campbell’s textbook (1984) cites 19. Yet the epidemiology literature is summarized in just a few paragraphs. Messing (1984) used two paragraphs; Walsh’s review in an earlier Campbell’s textbook (1978) also used only two; Hanno and Wein (1987) were more expansive and used four paragraphs. One reason for the brevity is that with the exception of Oravisto (1975) nearly all the literature made reference only in passing to the issue of epidemiology.
