Children with an overactive bladder generally exhibit frequency, urgency, and urge incontinence. Often, a child will squat to try to prevent urinary incontinence. The bladder in these children is not anatomically and is functionally, smaller than normal and exhibits strong uncontrolled contractions. The aim of this study was to the evaluation of blood pressure (BP) in children with idiopathic overactive bladder syndrome. In this case-control study, we selected 110 children with overactive bladder as cases and 220 children without overactive bladder as controls. Children with overactive bladder and healthy children without overactive bladder were enrolled, and their BP was measured in children. P <0.05 was considered statistically significant in our comparisons. The mean age of the children was 8.8 ± 1.70 and 8.53 ± 2.44 years in overactive bladder and control group, respectively. The mean systolic and diastolic BP were a significant difference between case and control groups (P = 0.001). Systolic and diastolic BP were significantly higher in children with overactive bladder.
