DÄ internationalArchive12/2016NPH Among the Potential Causes
LNSLNS

One differential diagnosis that I miss in this otherwise very well researched article (1) is normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). This condition is neither mentioned under risk factors nor in history-taking as a potential cause of urinary or fecal incontinence, even though both types of incontinence are main symptoms of this disorder, besides abnormal gait.
