Genito-Urinary Pain Syndromes and Symptom Syndromes Suggestive of LUTD

Abrams et al. 2002 1

"Genito-Urinary Pain Syndromes and Symptom Syndromes Suggestive of LUTD Syndromes describe constellations, or varying combinations of symptoms, but cannot be used for precise diagnosis. The use of the word ‘syndrome’ can only be justified if there is at least one other symptom in addition to the symptom used to describe the syndrome. In scientific communications the incidence of individual symptoms within the syndrome should be stated, in addition to the number of individuals with the syndrome.
