Introduction:

 We aimed to assess the neuropsychological development by comparing the children with primary monosymptomatic enuresis (MSE) and those who are totally healthy control

Material and methods:

 The study included 30 children with MSE who applied to our hospital and 30 children who were completely healthy and had a routine checkup. Childhood psychologist applied Wisc-R intelligence test and Bender Gestalt Visual-Motor tests both of them.

Results:

 Performance IQ was found retarded in children with MSE (p=0.001). The patients with MSE was found to have lower score in the  image completion, image editing and component assembly tests which are the performance subtests and also lower scores in similarity and comprehension tests which are the verbal subtests (p<0.05).

Conclusions:

 Our results support that children with MSE are more unsuccessful in abstract thinking, correct expression of thought, cause-result relation, social intelligence, short-term memory and problem solving ability. In terms of treatment integrity, they may need to be screened for neurodevelopment and, if necessary, they may receive supportive care.
