Background: Children with an overactive bladder typically exhibit urinary frequency, urgency and urge incontinence. The present investigation was conducted to evaluate the relationship between sleep disorders and hyperactive bladders in children.

Methods: Participants in the nested case-control study included 132 children referred to Amirkabir Pediatrics Clinic. Sixty-six children suffering from overactive bladders designated as cases and 66 children referred for other medical conditions designated as controls.

Results: The mean score of nine different sleep disorders was 0.38 ± 0.87 for control subjects and 2.24 ± 1.73 among case patients. Obtained data show significant differences between the two groups in terms of sleep disorders (P = 0.001).

Conclusions: The study demonstrates a significant difference between children with overactive bladders and without it in primary insomnia, hypersomnia disorder, circadian rhythm sleep disorder and sleep terror disorder.
