Abstract


In 1986, Fowler and colleagues described a condition currently known as Fowler's syndrome in young women with unexplained urinary retention associated with polycystic ovary syndrome. Herein, we present a case of a 13-year-old woman diagnosed with Fowler's Syndrome as a result of clinical, radiological and urodynamic electromyogram (EMG) findings. Fowler's syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis in children with unexplained chronic urinary retention.


Keywords


Chronic urinary retention, Fowler’s syndrome, polycystic ovary, persistent suprapubic pain, child.
