BACKGROUND: Suoquan is widely used to treat frequent urination, enuresis, and other diseases caused by kidney qi deficiency. Many clinical trials assessing the efficacy and safety of Suoquan for the treatment of enuresis have been reported. This review will assess the clinical evidence for and against the use of Suoquan as a treatment for enuresis.

METHODS AND ANALYSIS: Fourteen databases will be searched until 2018. We will include randomized controlled trials (RCTs) examining Suoquan decoctions for any type of enuresis. All RCTs of decoctions or modified decoctions will be included. The methodological qualities of the RCTs will be assessed using the Cochrane Collaboration tool for assessing risk of bias.

ETHICS AND DISSEMINATION: This systematic review will be published in a peer-reviewed journal. The review will be disseminated both electronically and in print. It will be updated to inform and guide healthcare practices.
