lazy bladder syndrome

lazy bladder syndrome

an abnormal voiding pattern in children due to detrusor dysfunction, characterized by infrequent voiding and urinary overflow incontinence. The bladder is large and hypotonic, with diminished urge to urinate and slow urine flow, which the patient may accelerate by straining or manual pressure on the bladder.
A condition described in children with a history of infrequent—1 to 2 times/day—voiding and overflow incontinence. Because of the bladder decompensation from chronic overdistension, the bladder does not properly empty and children with lazy bladder are prone to urinary tract infections
