Non-neurogenic pediatric voiding dysfunction is defined as a problem during bladder filling or emptying without any neurogenic abnormality in children. The appropriate treatment of non-neurogenic pediatric voiding dysfunction is important because the disorder is frequently seen in clinical practice and might result in damages of the child's bladder or kidney. Urotherapy can be defined as nonsurgical nonpharmacological treatment for voiding dysfunction, categorized into standard urotherapy or specific intervention. Understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of non-neurogenic pediatric voiding dysfunction will lead to a change in management, from expensive and potentially harmful medications and invasive procedures to effective, noninvasive treatment of urotherapy.
