Enuresis

Enuresis is the inability to control urination during sleep, and occurs most often in children above 3 years old, and occasionally in adults. Causative factors of this disease include hypoplasia of cerebral centre controlling urination. There are also local factors such as cystitis, balanitis (inflammation of the penis), phimosis (inability to retract foreskin from penis), or pin worms (oxyuriasis). These conditions may cause local irritation, leading to enuresis; in addition, congenital sacral spina bifida may also be a factor.
