ABSTRACT
A myriad of disorders lead to a wet child and nocturnal enuresis is not at all unusual in pediatric population. It is a problem that is often ignored by the treating paediatrician, but is a source of psychological stress for the affected child as well as the parents. Increasing attention is now being focussed on the problem but a number of questions regarding the etiology and the management still elude an answer. This article aims at presenting a review of the current information on nocturnal enuresis, including the mechanisms for urinary continence, the etiopathogenesis and the available therapeutic modes, keeping the main focus on primary nocturnal enuresis.
