Abstract

Desmopressin has been used in the treatment of nocturnal polyuria, diabetes insipitus and primary nocturnal enuresis. We present a patient who experienced prolonged urinary drainage after percutaneous nephrolithotomy but did not respond to insertion of a double pig-tail stent and was treated instead with oral desmopressin.
