Enuresis is the involuntary passage of urine. It may be of three types.
1 Nocturnal- usually occurs in first third of sleep, frequently during REM sleep; child may recall a dream with voiding.
2 Diurnal- more frequent in girls and rarely after age 9 yr; voiding occurs in early afternoon on school days.
3 Combined- nocturnal and diurnal enuresis.
Nocturnal enuresis or bed wetting is a form of parasomnia, characterized by the voluntary or involuntary repeated discharge of urine into clothes or bed in night after a developmental age when bladder control should be established. Sleep enuresis is only considered significant after the age of five years with a minimum of two events per week.
The exact causes of Nocturnal Enuresis are not clear. Some modalities in this regard are postulated as below-
There are two types of nocturnal enuresis:
It refers to enuresis that happens early in child’s development without a six-month enuresis-free period. It results when children do not arouse from sleep in response to bladder sensations.
It refers to enuresis that happens between 6 months and several years after the child has been dry. Secondary sleep enuresis is related to psychological stressors, as well as the inability to concentrate urine, increased urine production, neurological pathology, seizures, and obstructive sleep apnea.
By putting centre of attention on urological function and assessing neurological function, especially of the lower extremities, may provide etiologic clues.
It should be focussed on the underlying cause. Patients should limit night time liquid intake and urinate before going to bed. Behavioural therapy, including micturitional training or bed alarms may improve urinary control. Gratifying the child for being dry at night is a useful step. The dry nights can be charted and, with each dry night, a prize can be given. Additional ample rewards should be given for increasing achievement.
