Editor's comments:
Pediatric Case Report. This case report reflects that bedwetting is a serious psychological problem that involves the entire family.  In this instance a 8-year old boy tied a thread around his penis due to his nocturnal enuresis, causing partial circumferential distal penile amputation.
