Özet

An understanding of the basics of the anatomy of the bladder mucosa is essential to better understand the pathophysiology of chemo-and radiotherapy-induced cystitis. Following an overview of bladder anatomy and the definitions and causes of bladder injury, the mechanisms of cyclophosphamide (CP)-induced bladder injury are discussed as a specific example.
