Non-organic enuresis is a common functional disorder in the pediatric population. Epidemiological studies have shown that the disease is characterized by spontaneous remission and complete recovery as the child grows. However, the seriousness of the problem remains due to the undoubted negative impact of non-organic enuresis on the child’s development, psycho-emotional state and quality of life. There is a worldwide effort to unify tactics for treating non-organic enuresis and to educate primary care physicians on the latest treatments for this disorder. Thus, the purpose of this article is to review recent state-of-the-art scientific publications on non-medicated and medication treatments for non-organic enuresis and their efficacy.
