    Study of 1129 enuretics


    A long-term follow-up of 1129 children with nocturnal enuresis, not treated by the electric alarm, has shown that the annual spontaneous cure rate between 5 and 9 years of age was 14%, between 10 and 14 years 16%, and between 15 and 19 years 16%. 33 patients (3%) were still wetting after 20 years.

    Organic cause for enuresis and the ineffectiveness of drug therapy are discussed.
