“Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (FGID) are a frequent motive for health care needs in gastroenterology, thus causing serious problems socially and in family dynamics.

We found that IBS is relatively frequent as a cause for functional Chronic Abdominal Pain (CAP) and that an interrogatory following Rome criteria is useful for its diagnosis.”
