Abstract

Objective: Nocturnal enuresis (NE) is a common childhood disorder. As children age and NE persists, it may become more stressful for both them and their caregivers. The aim of the present study was to assess the impact of NE on the quality of life of children who were diagnosed with NE, and their mothers, and to compare the results with a healthy control group.
