Enuresis is a common childhood condition which is usually treatable. Enuresis at any age can lead to embarrassment. This coupled with teasing by peers resulting in social withdrawal, avoidance of overnight stay at relatives, and friends can have a long term effect in relationships than the enuresis itself. Organic and psychological causes should be considered, especially with the late onset or exacerbation of existing enuresis. Principles of management should be focused to address any precipitating and maintaining factors and also provide appropriate advice and explanation.
