Enuresis is a distressing psycho-social disorder. It is often a neglected disorder, and its effect on the psychosocial development of a child is often overlooked, especially in those of low socio-economic status. Its exact pathophysiology is not completely understood, but it has been related to the effect of dopamine in the basal ganglia. However, its association with pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder associated with streptococci infection is well-established. But, the case of an 11-year-old Nigerian girl diagnosed with Sydenham's chorea and had secondary enuresis is reported.
