Cystitis cystica is a benign urothelial lesion characterized by the presence of cystically dilated von Brunn nests.
Benign diverticular lesions usually involve inflammatory histologic changes, such as cystitis cystica and cystitis glandularis, tissue granuloma and cellular atypia.
Irrespective of the various histologic patterns, there is usually evidence of cystitis cystica et glandularis or surface glandular metaplasia in the adjacent benign urothelium.

The nests commonly have central lumina resembling cystitis cystica.
