Case-by-case: UTIs and enuresis

Module summary
Consultant paediatrician Dr Anthony Cohn presents paediatric urinary cases, with a chance to compare your management with his.
Learning objectives

Using five different case presentations, this module will update you on:

  • Symptoms that help distinguish upper from lower UTIs
  • How to ensure that an appropriate urine specimen is obtained
  • How to distinguish between OAB and a bladder burster
  • Treating children with nocturnal enuresis 

Within the module you will be presented with five cases, followed by an open-ended question, which will ask you to write down how you would approach the case at a given point. You will then be presented with advice from the author, allowing you to compare your approach to that of a specialist in the field.

There is no post-module assessment. Instead, you will be invited to reflect on the cases and your current practice.


Dr Anthony Cohn is a consultant paediatrician at West Hertfordshire Hospital NHS Trust.
