Abstract
Nocturnal enuresis is caused by a mismatch between the nocturnal bladder capacity and the nocturnal diuresis rate, in the presence of a deficient arousability in the majority of patients, according to the pediatric and urologic literature. Psychiatric and psychologic literature are still concentrating on the potential role of psychological factors and central nervous mechanisms in the pathogenesis, as is reflected in the DMS-5 criteria. However, research has clearly shown several important comorbidities between neuropsychological dysfunctions and nocturnal enuresis. Due to the increased comorbidity of (neuro)psychological problems, sleep problems, circadian rhythms, and enuresis, the question arises as to whether there is a possible common central pathway in the pathogenesis. It is likely that the coexistence of these problems can be attributed to a common central nervous system involvement. The specific role of the central nervous system remains unclear, but several pathways are possible. The high comorbidity between enuresis, sleep, and (neuro)psychological functioning is probably attributable to a common pathogenetic pathway, emphasizing the importance of a multidisciplinary focus in screening and treatment in children with nocturnal enuresis.
