AIM: Cyclophosphamide-induced haemorrhagic cystitis (CHC) is an uncommon but well-recognised condition caused by a metabolite, acrolein, which is toxic to the urothelium. Based on similarities in the histopathology of radiation- and chemotherapy-induced haemorrhagic cystitis, benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been proposed. HBOT produces an increased oxygen partial pressure ...
