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.

Fowler's syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis in children with unexplained chronic urinary retention.
