4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Introduction & Objective : Nocturnal involuntary wetting or nocturnal enuresis is a common problem in children. It is the second common childhood disease after bronchial asthma. Nocturnal enuresis can be primary when it starts since childhood or secondary where there is a period of control more than 6 months. Mono-symptomatic Nocturnal (MNE) enuresis is defined as nocturnal enuresis with out diurnal symptoms. The exact aetiology of MNE is still unknow.

Objectives: To assess the bladder function in patients with monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (MNE).


Methods :

Data was collected from 42 patients with MNE who were referred for urodynamic evaluation at urology department, Sohag University. History and physical examination were done and cystometrogram done for all patients according to International Continence Society Guidelines (ICS).


Results : Urodynamic study was done for 42 patients with MNE, 27 of them were females (64.5%) and 15 males (35.5%). Abnormal cystometric finings was detected in the form of detrusor overactivity in 52.5% and abnormal bladder sensations in 24% of patients.


Conclusions : Detrusor overactivity and overactive bladder was detected in more than 50% of MNE. This suggests that overactive bladder play a role in the pathogenesis of MNE and antimuscarnic drugs could be offered as a standard treatment.
