Abstract.

Background: Diabetic neurogenic bladder (DNB) is one of the autonomic neuropathies of diabetes mellitus (DM), with an incidence rate reaching 40-60%. This study combined bladder function rehabilitation training and mecobalamin to treat a patient with DNB to provide reference for clinical work. Case description: A 67-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital on 5 December 2018, with a 3-year history of dysuria that had progressively worsened for 15 days. The patient was treated with pelvic floor myofascial manipulation combined with Kegel training and mecobalamin for 6 months. Pelvic organ prolapse (POP), pelvic floor surface electromyography (EMG), psychological status, and quality of life were evaluated before, during, and after treatment, and the changes in urodynamics were observed. After comprehensive rehabilitation treatment, the patient's POP, pelvic floor muscle strength, mental state, and quality of life were significantly improved. The results of the urodynamic examination showed that the patient's safe bladder capacity reached 500 mL after treatment, in contrast to the first safe bladder capacity measurement of 90 mL. The symptoms of ureteral reflux disappeared, the detrusor compliance increased from 2 to 20 mL/cmH2O, which roughly indicated a return to healthy function. However, there was no detrusor contraction in the bladder during urination. Conclusions: This patient achieved good curative effect after the treatment of comprehensive pelvic floor rehabilitation combined with mecobalamin. However, the safe capacity of the patient reported in this case showed a small bladder safe capacity, and the patient's detrusor muscle did not contract during urination. Thus, urination in this patient may be accomplished by increasing abdominal pressure. When treating patients with atypical neurogenic bladder, the adverse effects caused by excessive abdominal pressure and abdominal wall relaxation need to be considered.
