In evaluating a child with enuresis, an organized approach to the history leads to a working diagnosis and an appropriate treatment plan. Questions are grouped in nine categories: perinatal complications, complications in infancy, toilet training, voiding pattern (assessed with a voiding diary), micturition pattern, urinary infection, defecation pattern, perineal symptoms and food sensitivities. Structural abnormalities must be evaluated cautiously to assure that a functional problem is not overlooked.
