This workshop offers a comprehensive overview on the current knowledge on nocturia. We will start with a critical review on terminology, and continue with discussing epidemiology, causes, comorbidities, and consequences of nocturia. Nocturnal polyuria is an important cause of nocturia, but its role in other symptoms, such as incontinence, urinary tract infections and retention, is clearly underestimated. This will be discussed before pointing out the different treatment options for nocturia and specifically nocturnal polyuria.
Finally, similarities between nocturia and nocturnal enuresis in children will be explored. The latter has already been studied intensively and offers many hints for further nocturia research.
