Abstract

The findings in 10 children with neuropathic vesicourethral dysfunction after the onset of a central nervous system tumour are presented. Eight had a spinal tumour and two a brainstem tumour. Bladder dysfunction occurred late in most children except in those with neoplastic infiltration of the conus and cauda equina. Moreover, tumour recurrence was often heralded by loss of bladder control before other neurological signs became obvious. Videourodynamics (VUD) showed various combinations of ''filling'' and ''voiding'' dysfunction in tumours extending from the pens to the cauda equina, whereas an isolated ''filling'' dysfunction was evident in the patient with a suprapontine tumour. Urinary incontinence and recurrent urine infection can be immensely distressingto children and their families, particularly when they have had to cope with the stress of diagnosis and treatment of the underlying tumour. Different management strategies, based on VUD findings, are discussed highlighting the impact these have on the children's quality of life.
