Abstract: Children usually outgrows it. It is a self-limiting condition that can
spontaneously remit. By 14 years of
age, only 1.1% of boys wet once a
week or more. This condition can cause
psychological distress to the children. Negative effect on self-esteem
improves after successful treatment. Frequency of urination is more
important than amount. Lower
frequency of enuretic event has
positive outcome. Positive family history appears to be
positively correlated with treatment
