What's new? The Bedwetting Knowledge Centre

Bedwetting, or nocturnal enuresis is defined as intermittent incontinence while sleeping. Applicable to children ≥ 5 years old, wetting episodes of any type that occur in discrete amounts are indicative to nocturnal enuresis.1,2

Due to variations in comorbidity, treatment response and pathogenesis, nocturnal enuresis can be divided into two subgroups – monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (MNE) and non-monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (NMNE).1,3 Absence of lower urinary tract symptoms or a history of bladder dysfunction is characteristic of MNE, while NMNE is defined as nocturnal enuresis accompanied by daytime urinary symptoms.

Nocturnal enuresis can have a profound impact on the child and their family, lowering a child’s self image, causing behavioural problems and affecting school performance. However, successful treatment improves the mental health of the child and brings practical relief to the family.
