LAZARUS, J. The paediatric neuropathic bladder. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.3, pp. 220-220. ISSN 2078-5135.

Paediatric neuropathic bladder dysfunction can cause irreversible renal damage and urinary incontinence. Aetiologically, this condition is usually caused by a congenital neural tube defect. The majority of affected children can be successfully managed with the standard medical treatment of clean intermittent catheterisation and anticholinergic medication (typically oxybutynin). A small subset of patients who receive oral oxybutynin experience severe side-effects or insufficient suppression of detrusor overactivity. This group may require alternative medical or surgical management.
