[Article in German]


The outcome of 103 enuretics after a mean follow-up of 2.7 years showed remission of wetting in 63%. The figures varied considerably for different subgroups. Enuresis in association with conduct disorders had the worst outcome. Girls showed better response to treatment. A high score of behaviour abnormalities was related to poor outcome. A global outcome measure at follow-up added further information to remission rates.
