Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To study incidence of spina bifida occulta in nocturnal enuresis cases and to compare outcome of enuresis with spina bifida occulta and enuresis without spina bifida occulta. METHODS: Patients with enuresis divided into two groups based on X-ray lumbosacral spine. Outcome of these patients were compared on behavioral therapy. RESULTS: Spina bifida occulta was detected in 18 out of total 48 patients. Levels of spina bifida were L5 vertebrae in 3,L5-S1 in 5,S1 in 8 and S1-S2 in 2 patients. Outcome was evaluated in 42 patients who were followed up for more than 6 months. There was no significant difference between both the groups. CONCLUSION: Spina bifida occulta is a common finding in enuresis. Outcome of patients with spina bifida occulta is not different than the patients without spina bifida occulta.
