Book Chapter
Neuro-urological emergencies are relatively infrequent in comparison to other urological emergencies; the general urologist's exposure to these problems is therefore limited. Lack of awareness of these diagnoses can however lead to significant morbidity or mortality, hence clinicians should be alert to the conditions and be aware of the initial measures required to prevent deterioration of the patient. In addition, these emergencies often require a multidisciplinary input hence communication with neurologists, neurosurgeons and oncologists is an important facet of their management.
