We attempted in this study, to estimate the prevalence of primary nocturnal enuresis (PNE) in children of Jordan, and to examine factors associated with PNE. We sent questionnaires to 950 parents of children aged 6-8 years, randomly selected from three primary schools in Jordan. The questionnaire was designed to evaluate the prevalence and factors associated with PNE. The response rate was 71.6%. The overall prevalence of PNE was 23.8%. This prevalence declined with age from 48.9% at 6 years to 21.1% at 7 years and 8.4% at 8 years. Our findsings indicate that the prevalence of PNE in Jordan is higher than that reported from other Asian or European countries, while the associated factors are similar.
