Since the inclusion of diuretics in the list of banned substances in sports in 1988, a large number of screening and confirmation procedures to detect the presence of these substances in urine samples have been developed. In this paper, a review of the analytical methodology described to analyze diuretics is presented. The paper has been focused on the needs of doping control and mainly screening procedures including sample preparation and liquid or gas chromatographic separation have been considered. More relevant papers using capillary zone electrophoresis have been also considered. Mass spectrometry is mandatory in doping control for confirmation purposes, and finally, mass spectrometric techniques described for diuretics have been reviewed.
