In this issue of the Journal, Ghoshal and colleagues compare the concordance of the Rome III and IV criteria for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in both a tertiary care and community setting in India [1]. IBS is a disorder of the gut-brain interaction [2], characterized by abdominal pain in association with altered stool form or altered stool frequency, affecting approximately 5% to 10% of the population [3]. IBS is costly to health services [4], reduces ability to work and socialize [5] and has a substantial negative impact on the quality of life, which in some individuals may be impaired to a similar degree to those living with a stroke, heart failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [6].
