Dribbling of urine, poor urinary flow, leaking underpants are some of the symptoms which may indicate that the urinary bladder is not perfectly well in a child. Eneuresis may be primary and monosymptomatic which may be modified and treated with behavioral therapy, but this may also be a tell tale sign of a more serious disorder like congenital bladder outlet obstruction in the form of posterior urethral valve, or an occult spinal disorder. Myelomeningocele and other forms of spina bifida often is associated with bladder disorders and if untreated may lead to chronic kidney disease despite being born with a set of completely normal kidneys.

To diagnose and manage such problems of urinary bladder, a special interest is needed on the part of the treating physician. Systematic evaluation through careful history taking, focused examination, judicious investigation can reveal defects in the functioning of the urinary bladder which may be medically or surgically modified to protect the kidneys. The end point is always preserving the renal function (upper tracts) and maintaining a dry interval so that the child does not continually wets the underpants or smells of urine so that they can lead a socially productive life. Often a simple maneuver like rectal irrigation to remove the impacted stool may magically cure the child of all the symptoms.

Pediatric Bladder Group ia aimed at bringing together physicians across the globe who are interested in studying the ailments of the urinary bladder in children. The team includes Pediatric Surgeons, Pediatric Nephrologists, Physiotherapists, Radiologists, Social Workers and parents who have overcome their children's problems and are ready to volunteer to help others.
