Abstract:   (238 Views)
Nocturnal enuresis  (NE) is a psychosocial  problem  for  children  and  parents.  The  incidence  of  Ne  is  20%  in  5  years  old children. Since  no  single  etiology  is  found  for  disorder, various  therapeutic  modalities  have  been  used.  None  of  which  could  cure  enuresis  entirely.  Two  types  of  treatment  are  considered:  Pharamacologic  &  nonpharmacologic. A  prospective  experimental  study  in  the  level  of  clinical  trial  in  98  children  aged  5-15  years  who  have  NE  underwent  for  1  month  of  therapy  with  imiperamine  in  49  and  desmopressin  in  49  no.  of  patient  treated  with  imiperamine  36  children  have  complete  response (73%)  (all  dry  bed), at  the  3  months  follow  up  20  children  have  recurrence.  Ammong patients  treated  with  dessmopressin, 31  children  have  complete  response (63%).  Recueernce  rate  after  3  months  is  17  cases. Our  results  didn’t  indicate  any  statistical  difference  between  imipramine  &  desmopressin  in  the  treatment  of  N.E.  Imipramine  is  more  complicated  than  desmopressin  so  that  desmppressin  is  preferred.
