The ICS Neurourology Promotion Committee is pleased to announce that the ICS report on Lower urinary tract dysfunction in uncommon neurological diseases is available in Volume 1 of the new Continence Journal.
The management of patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction has been well-described, however this is most frequently discussed for common conditions such as spinal cord injury or multiple sclerosis. Our objective was to review uncommon neurologic disorders and summarize both the underlying disease process, and the relevant disease-specific research on the impact of the neurologic condition on the lower urinary tract. Among the degenerative and traumatic brain disorders, we have included frontotemporal dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Huntington’s Disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, multiple system atrophy, and traumatic brain injury. Among the autoimmune disorders, we reviewed transverse myelitis, neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders, Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody-associated disease, glial fibrillary acidic protein astrocytopathy, and meningitis-retention syndrome (a form of aseptic meningitis that presents with urinary retention). Hereditary spastic paraplegia, VACTERL association, and several peripheral neuropathies (Guillain Barre syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, autoimmune autonomic gangliopathy, Wolfram syndrome spectrum disorder (a progressive peripheral neuropathy disorder with early onset diabetes, optic atrophy and megacystis in the early stage), Charcot Marie Tooth disease, and amyloid neuropathy are included. Practice points specific to the disorders are included where appropriate.
You can view this report in Volume 1 of Continence where the report is officially published.
