It is widely believed that nocturnal enuresis is caused by a hereditary delay in maturation of the various organ systems. In this study, growth and bone age were investigated in enuretic children. There was a significant bone age lag in the enuretic group compared to the control subjects of similar age (8.15 +/- 1.56 years vs 9.45 +/- 2.17 years, p < 0.05). It has been suggested that skeletal maturation also are retarded in nocturnal enuresis; and, it may be caused by the delayed maturation in regulatory functions of the central nervous system
