Enuresis Directory

Enuresis occurs when children repeatedly urinate in other places than the toilet. The most common type of enuresis is bed-wetting, or nocturnal enuresis. Daytime wetting is called diurnal enuresis. Common causes include a small bladder, urinary tract infections, stress, developmental delays, and mental disorders. Children often outgrow enuresis, but if treatment is warranted, it may include bed-wetting alarms, medications, or other treatments.
