Lower urinary tract syndrome is common in children. Incontinence, urinary tract infection, vesicoureteral reflux, and constipation are commonly associated with this syndrome. Examining the clinical history of the afflicted patient plays a major role in the accurate diagnosis and treatment of lower urinary tract disorder. Along with pharmacologic treatment, pelvic floor muscle retraining, biofeedback therapy, and adaptation of a healthy lifestyle are advocated for rapid recovery of patients.
