Background: Most of the 3-5 years old children can control urination and defecation; this time can be influenced by several factors. Voiding dysfunction in children encompasses a wide spectrum of clinical entities, recently classified collectively as dysfunctional elimination syndromes (DES). The aim of this study was to identify some factors which may be associated with dysfunctional elimination syndromes in children.Methods: We assessed 544 children 7 to 10 years old (mean age 8.68 ± 1.48 years) randomly selected from 10 elementary schools. All children and parents were requested to fill pediatric lower urinary tract scoring system (PLUTSS) and demographic questionnaire related to symptoms of dysfunctional elimination syndromes and some other factors. After statistical analysis, questions from the initial form were selected to form a final scale.Finding: Neither neonatal gestational age and kind of delivery nor family (parents) living together was associated with dysfunctional elimination syndromes in childre.Conclusion: Dysfunctional elimination syndromes do not belong to neonatal gestational age, kind of delivery and family living together.
