A challenging review of childhood incontinence: rare complications of dysfunctional elimination syndrome in an epileptic boy.

Author information

Department of Pediatric Urology, Ankara University Faculty of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.


A multidisciplinary approach is mandatory in defining the cause and directing the treatment of childhood urinary incontinence. Both pediatricians and pediatric urologists should carefully evaluate a child with incontinence for possible overlapping etiologies, before labeling him or her as a refractory case. We report an epileptic boy with dysfunctional elimination syndrome (DES) with associated rare complications of giggle incontinence and idiopathic urethritis, proving the need for a good voiding diary, patient history and structured symptom scores.
