Abstract

We report 7 cases of severe hemorrhagic cystitis that required repeated transfusions, surgical intervention and oral conjugated estrogens. Of these 7 cases hematuria resolved completely in 5 during estrogen therapy and decreased sufficiently in 1 to preclude further transfusion. We found conjugated estrogens to be an effective, simple, inexpensive, well tolerated and readily available treatment for hemorrhagic cystitis.
