Abstract

Acute urinary retention is an uncommon complaint in the pediatric practice. The etiology of the urinary retention can be organic due to either obstructive or non-obstructive disorders, or the etiology can be due to a non-organic process. Three young children with non-organic urinary retention are described. To the best of our knowledge these are the youngest patients ever reported. The diagnostic evaluation and the therapeutic approach are discussed with a review of the literature.
