Bedwetting, or nocturnal enuresis, is a frequent medical condition that affects children, adolescents, and adults. It can cause significant secondary psychosocial and emotional impacts on the patient and his or her family.

When evaluating a child who wets the bed after the age of 5, an important first distinction is whether the bedwetting is accompanied by daytime symptoms (non-monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis; NMNE) or not (monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis; MNE).

While most cases of MNE or “isolated” bedwetting are familial, a specific gene remains to be identified. The pathophysiology of bedwetting is known, and consists of high arousal threshold combined with either an overactive night-time bladder or a very high level of night-time urine production (nocturnal polyuria; NP), or a combination of both.

This educational platform offers the best content on Bedwetting, as selected by a highly experienced editorial board. From the latest clinical trial findings, meeting reports, and interviews with experts to educational activities such as webinars, e-courses and masterclasses, the EAU Bedwetting Edu Platform will keep you up to date with the latest developments in the field.

The Bedwetting Edu Platform is an initiative of the European Association of Urology (EAU) in close collaboration with the European School of Urology (ESU) and European Urology.
