Nonmonosymptomatic Nocturnal Enuresis
Nonmonosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (NMNE) is defined as the presence of diurnal voiding symptoms in a patient with nocturnal enuresis. In enuresis patients aged 7 years the incidence of NMNE is about 20–30%. There is a strong possibility that NMNE patients have bowel problems such as constipation or stool incontinence and a psychiatric problem such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Treatment of NMNE must include treatment of diurnal voiding symptoms. Without treatment of diurnal voiding symptoms, nocturnal enuresis frequently does not respond to conventional treatment.
