Lower urinary tract dysfunction refers to a broad term that encompasses subsets of bladder and sphincter dysfunction with different manifestations.
The disorder is defined as a condition involving abnormalities during filling or emptying of the bladder and can come with urinary incontinence, urge complaints, or urinary tract infections.
LUT symptoms are classified according to their relation to the storage and/or voiding phase of bladder function. In most cases, paediatric lower urinary tract dysfunction occurs in children without anatomical or neurological lesions.
