aim is to define the concept of enuresis and its types; to contribute a
protocol based on a careful anamnesis and an exploration and a basic
analysis of urine to enable us to make an initial selection of those
cases that might have a pathological background and thus be susceptible

specific treatment depending on the cause. On the other hand, we aim to
present a work methodology that is applicable in the great majority of
types of enuresis, and which, besides being free of the undesirable
effects of some classic treatments, obtains a high percentage of
success. Similarly, we aim to contribute a series of basic norms for a
correct apprenticeship in starting to control micturition and that could
be incorporated in the program of a healthy child.
