DIAGNOSTIC ALGORITHM IN CHILDREN WITH ENURESIS NOCTURNA

D. Bliznakova, I. Galabov

Abstract

Enuresis nocturna is a common disorder in childhood representing a serious medico-social problem. A series of organic, functional, familial, life-style, and psycho-social reasons are involved in wetting one's bed in children. The diagnostic algorithm in children with enuresis nocturna includes a detailed anamnesis and clinical examination, laboratory tests of urine, urea, creatinine, uric acid, ionogram, and echography of the urinary tract. The exclusion of an organic etiology requires purposeful search for psycho-social, familial, and life-style factors as well as consult examination by a psychiatrist or neurologist.
