Sexual abuse during childhood can lead to severe psychosomatic dysfunctions both in children and adults. Many urologic problems, without organic findings, can be caused by sexual abuse. Among others, chronic pelvic pain (CPPS), enuresis, incontinence, dysfunctional voiding, and sexual dysfunction can occur. When children or adults see the urologist because of their symptoms there is always the danger of reproducing the abusive event by invasive diagnostic procedures.This session discusses these problems from both pediatric and adult perspectives. We discuss the assessment and treatment options as well as the special care these individuals need. Actual cases are utilized during the session.
