Abstract: The etiology of enuresis is not completely explained. It is assumed
that it might be a psychosomatic disorder caused by psychological and
urological predispositions combined with unfavorable environmental factors.
Thirty-seven patients of both sexes (mean age 8 years) were included in the
acupuncture treatment. They had not shown any improvement after
psychotherapy. During the observation period of 6 months (180 days) after
the acupuncture treatment, the statistical decrease of enuresis was evident
(2.9), thus confirming that acupuncture represents a new possibility of
treatment of patients with enuresis.
