  • Congenital defects (those present at birth) such as ectopic ureters

  • Bacterial cystitis (lower urinary tract infection)

  • Drug-induced cystitis such as that caused by cyclophosphamide, which is a drug used to treat some types of cancer and immune diseases

  • Hydronephrosis, which is distension of the urinary space within the kidney due to obstruction

  • Cancer of the urinary tract

  • Disorders of the nervous system that interfere with urination

  • Rare parasites of the urinary tract (kidney and bladder worm)
