Editor’s comments:
This article represents one of the more comprehensive review about definition, pathopysiology, gender differences, sleep disorders, clinical representation and treatment about nocturia. It has been written by the most experienced urologists in the field and it can be really considered as a guideline for all the physicians who want to approach and deeply  investigate nocturia.

The following is a report of the proceedings of the Nocturia Think Tank sessions of the annual International Consultation on Incontinence-Research Society, which took place June 13–15, 2011 in Bristol, UK. The report is organized into sections pertaining to the main topics of discussions having occurred at that meeting, centering on the relationship of nocturnal polyuria (NP) and nocturia but also synthesizing more current evidence advancing our knowledge of the diagnosis and management of nocturia. This article is not meant to be a comprehensive review on the subject of nocturia, a number of which are available in the recent literature. All authors were physically present during, or in a preliminary session just prior to, the meeting in Bristol.
