  • Refractory case of Interstitial Cystitis associated with Sjögren's syndrome: Beneficial effect of steroids in treatment
    James N.V.M., Bheri M.M., Taube M. Scottish Medical Journal 2006;51:3
    • the authors report a case of severe IC associated with Sjogren's syndrome in whom bladder symptoms responded to a course of steroids where other conventional management did not help
    • the authors believe that a high index of suspicion for the association of these two diseases would help treat some of the refractory cases of IC with a trial of corticosteroids
