Summary
Brief summary
Nocturnal enuresis and delayed urinary control during childhood are common entities. Not every child is ready for complete urinary control by 5 years of age, and it is difficult to predict their ability to gain this control. It would seem to be a continuous developmental situation with most problems resolving as the child grows older. Often, it seems to be a family trait with a parent, brother or sister late in developing complete urinary control. It is also unknown the impact of these problems in adult life and possible association with pathologic urinary conditions. The purpose of this study is to answer some of these questions.
