This condition is seldom treated successfully by adopting a routine course. We either do not know enough about the different conditions involved in the different cases or we do not pay attention enough to the study of the exact conditions when we are prescribing. The condition is one which puzzles every physician, all of whom have many failures, with their successes. I desire to present the experiences of our readers on the treatment of the various forms of enuresis, in an early issue. In preparing a history of these cases, please be specific in presenting the exact diagnostic features, and in giving the single remedies which seem to benefit specific conditions.
I recently had a case in consultation in which there was congenital absence of the cystic sphincter. The bladder opened outward freely, and urine had flowed from the meatus urinarius steadily, during the entire life of the patient, both day and night. This was a young lady, 17 years of age. This is one of the very many puzzling phases of this disease we are apt to meet.
