Answer

Bladder dysfunction can be treated with medications to treat or suppress infection and to decrease detrusor hyperreflexia. Intermittent bladder catheterization for urinary retention and desmopressin acetate nasal spray at bedtime for sleep-depriving nocturia unresponsive to fluid management are beneficial in some children.
