Infantile enuresis refers to involuntary and recurrent urination during sleep among infants over three years old. Enuresis may occur once in several days in mild cases and every night in serious cases, accompanied by lassitude and emaciation. According to TCM, infantile enuresis is caused by insufficiency of kidney qi which fails to consolidate the bladder; or by asthenia of lung and spleen qi that fails to govern the lower energizer; or by stagnation of heat in the liver meridian and disorder of the bladder in transforming qi. This syndrome mainly involves the kidney and bladder.
