In children, inguinal hernias, hydroceles, and cryptorchidism typically are associated with a patent processus vaginalis. Inguinal hernias occur in 3.5%-5% of full-term newborns and 9%-11% of premature newborns. Inguinal hernias are characterized by an intermittent mass in the groin that may be reducible or incarcerated. Incarcerated hernias usually are painful, can cause vomiting, and require prompt intervention. The definitive treatment is surgery, and urgency depends on symptoms and ability to reduce the hernia. Hydrocele is an accumulation of serous fluid in the tunica vaginalis around the testicle that presents as a painless, fluctuant mass. Most hydroceles resolve spontaneously by age 1 year. Cryptorchidism occurs when one or both testes do not migrate to the scrotum. The diagnosis is made via history and physical examination. Spontaneous descent of the testis may occur before age 6 months but referral to a surgical subspecialist is indicated if descent does not occur.

Toilet training is a developmental task that typically can be accomplished without medical intervention. Parent counseling about it can begin approximately at the 18- to 24-month well child visit. Guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend beginning toilet training when the child shows signs of readiness, but typically not before age 2 years; praising success using positive terms; avoiding punishment, shaming, or force; and making training positive, nonthreatening, and natural. Nocturnal enuresis is defined as urinary incontinence that occurs at night during sleep in children 5 years or older for 3 consecutive months. It is common, affecting 5%-10% of 7-year-old children in the United States. Nonpharmacologic management includes behavioral interventions (eg, limiting fluid intake before bedtime, waking the child at night to attempt to urinate, lifting the sleeping child onto the toilet and then waking him or her to urinate, bladder training to increase bladder capacity, or instituting a reward system). Bed alarms are the first-line intervention but typically are not reimbursed by health insurance. Pharmacotherapy includes desmopressin, tricyclic antidepressants, and anticholinergics. The combination of a bed alarm with pharmacotherapy can be considered as initial management or after an unsuccessful initial intervention.
