Abstract

In a survey of 138 enuretic children it was found that none gave a history of seizures. EEGs were obtained on 68 consecutive children and seven (10 percent) were reported as abnormal, which is similar to the incidence of abnormal EEGs found among the general population.The results of our study do not support the hypothesis that enuresis is an "epileptic equivalent."
