Faecal incontinence (FI) refers to recurring, uncontrolled leaking of solid or liquid stool for a period of at least 3 months in an individual with a developmental age of at least 4 years, according to the Rome Foundation for disorders of gut-brain interaction (DGBI).1 The definition has been rehearsed by the recently conveyed United European Gastroenterology Committee aiming to address all issues involved in FI management from diagnosis to treatment of difficult cases by means of an inclusive, multispecialty approach. Of note, this cooperative project was promoted by both health care providers and patient's organisation sensitive to FI.
