Doi: 10.4274/tpa.45.90
Sibel Tiryaki, Ali Avanoğlu

Most common cause of childhood incontinence is enuresis nocturna which is characterized with spontaneus resolution and physiologically normal voiding. Although most cases are not related to any structural or neurological abnormality, it is important to properly diagnose a child who presents with wetting. A thorough medical history will delineate the pattern of incontinence and additional investigations are indicated in only selected patients. If the physician can identify the voiding disorder and treat the cause not the symptom, will minimize the effects of the condition on the child's social development and also prevent the possible injuries to upper urinary tract. Therefore, this review will mostly focus on differential diagnosis of the causes of urinary incontinence. (Turk Arch Ped 2009; 44 Suppl: 90-3)
