Abstract Desmopressin (DDAVP) is frequently used in the treatment of primary isolated enuresis nocturna if other approaches have failed. We report a further case of hyponatraemia and cerebral convulsion due to water intoxication after intranasal DDAVP application by a 6 year-old boy with enuresis. CONCLUSION: Although adverse reactions in DDAVP (e.g. hyponatraemia) are rare, it should not be considered as the first choice treatment of enuresis nocturna and only be used with caution.
