What causes chronic cystitis?

Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder. Chronic cystitis is a long-lasting inflammation of the bladder. The cause of cystitis is typically a urinary tract infection (UTI) — when bacteria enter the bladder or urethra and multiply. A UTI can become a serious problem if the bacteria spread to your kidneys.

What causes cystitis without infection?

The exact cause of interstitial cystitis isn't known, but it's likely that many factors contribute. For instance, people with interstitial cystitis may also have a defect in the protective lining (epithelium) of the bladder. A leak in the epithelium may allow toxic substances in urine to irritate your bladder wall.
