You see a 7-year-old with complaints of “having accidents at night.” Physical exam and history are unremarkable. Urinalysis, urine culture, and specific gravity are normal. His parents ask about the best treatment for this problem. The best response is
Fluid restriction and voiding prior to the night may be effective.
Maturation of the urinary tract is still incomplete at this age and they just need to give it more time.
Conditioning devices like bed-wetting alarms are not the best option at this time because of the child’s age.
Medications like desmopressin acetate (DDAVP) provide the best long-term resolution.
