The mastocytosis in detrusor muscle and the leaky epithelium in interstitial cystitis were the most studied features. In this study the leaky epithelium was shown using the ruthenium red staining in electron microscopy and uroplakin distribution in light microscopy besides the mast cell concentration in detrusor muscle using tryptase immunohistochemistry.
