enuresis (en-yuh-ree-sis) noun

The uncontrolled or involuntary discharge of urine.

[New Latin, from Greek enourein, to urinate in : en-, in + ourein, to urinate.]

"`To date, there hasn't been much material about enuresis that is specifically aimed at the child so the programme has been developed to improve the information that children receive about their bed-wetting,' she (Dr Jacqueline Collier) says." Helen Hague, Self-help for bed-wetters, Independent, 17 Jul 1997.
