Background Persistent unexplained urological complaints and diseases are a common problem in clinical practice. Psychological components can play an important role in urological complaints. Neglect of these facts can lead to an insufficient or incorrect treatment. Therefore, apart from the specific medical diagnostics, a complete examination of mental and psychological functions before an invasive intervention is also required. Psychosomatics in urology Illustrated by the case of a young woman with a request for a cystectomy while suffering from a chronic pollakiuria, this paper explains the importance of good interdisciplinary collaboration for evidence-based, guideline-oriented medical treatment. The patient’s suffering and urge for removing the bladder was contrasted by a lack of medical indication for surgery and the principle of proportionality. The essay gives insight into the discipline of psychosomatic medicine, somotoform disorders found in urology and, especially, the symptoms of pollakiuria and overactive bladder. Conclusion The case illustrates the importance of timely and simultaneous medical and psychosocial diagnostics for the treatment outcome in patients with unspecific physical complaints. Treatment recommendations for patients with somatoform complaints in clinical practice are provided.
