|Abstract:||We encountered three patients with dysuria who had undergone spinal surgery for spina bifida during infancy. The patients presented with mental disability and dysbasia. Difficulty in urination, urinary incontinence, and a residual sensation of urine were resolved through intermittent self-catheterization in all patients. It was speculated that treatment for dysuria in these patients was delayed because they were not aware of its association with their condition during infancy, dysuria was relatively mild, and they had no history of febrile urinary tract infection. It is important for attending physicians to explain to parents of such infants the possible association of spina bifida with the future risk of dysuria, and to consider long-term follow-up to monitor their outcome.|
