Dr. Guy LeRoy Hunner, 1868–1957, a Johns Hopkins gynecologist, in a paper delivered to the Boston Medical Society described the ‘Hunners Ulcer’ in 1915. Seventy years later, in 1985 the idea of bringing together experts in the field of interstitial cystitis led to an assemblage following the 1986 International Continence Society meeting in Boston. This meeting was a unique opportunity to take advantage of the attendance and willingness of most of the authors who were internationally recognized in the field, and who eventually contributed to the first edition published in 1990.
