In 1986, Fowler and colleagues described a condition currently known as Fowler's syndrome in young women with unexplained urinary retention associated with polycystic ovary syndrome. Herein, we present a case of a 13-year-old woman diagnosed with Fowler's Syndrome as a result of clinical, radiological and urodynamic electromyogram (EMG) findings. Fowler's syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis in children with unexplained chronic urinary retention.
