OBJECTIVES: To review the role of cerebellum on the lower urinary tract dynamics. METHODS: Anatomic-functional methodology including structural, functional and neurotransmitters study. RESULTS: We describe the complex connections of the cerebellum and its influence on the lower urinary tract function. CONCLUSIONS: It is surprising the functional relationship between cerebellum and lower urinary tract, playing a inhibitory modulating role during the filling phase and facilitating the voiding phase.
