2014 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 788.36
- ICD-9-CM 788.36 will be replaced by an equivalent ICD-10-CM code (or codes) when the United States transitions from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM on October 1, 2015.
- ICD-9-CM 788.36 is a billable medical code that can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim.
- Nocturnal enuresis (bedwetting)
- Intermittent incontinence of urine while sleeping, regardless of whether intermittent daytime urinary incontinence is also present or not.
- Involuntary discharge of urine during sleep at night after expected age of completed development of urinary control.
- Many children wet the bed until they are 5 or even older. A child's bladder might be too small. Or the amount of urine produced overnight can be more than the bladder can hold. Some children sleep too deeply or take longer to learn bladder control. Children should not be punished for wetting the bed. They don't do it on purpose, and most outgrow it. Until then, bed-wetting alarms, bladder training and medicines might help.
