This study was on gender behaviour descriptive analysis of primary nocturnal enuresis in adolescent children using secondary school children. The participants included 50 secondary school children (26 males and 24 females) with M age of 14.89 and SD secondary age of 2.68. A questionnaire instrument designed by the researcher was used to collect the information. A survey research design was employed while chi square contingency and percentage were used in data analysis. The result of the study showed no significant difference on coping pattern applied by males and females in the management of enuresis. However, boys and girls differed significantly on treatment seeking behaviour for enuresis and on the number of wetting per night. The percentage of boys and girls that were worried/disturbed about the enuresis were the same. Discussion of the results together with recommendations were made.
