Day and night wetting are common pediatric urological concerns. Isolated nocturnal enuresis is rarely associated with functional or anatomical issues but diurnal wetting after the age of toilet training should be addressed. Different subtypes of diurnal enuresis require different and often specific treatment plans. Constipation is frequently associated and can impair successful therapy. A primary care physician can successfully treat most enuresis but severe dysfunctions or refractory patients need a referral to a specialist.
