Editor's comments:
This is a comprehensive report on the Standardization of Terminology in Nocturia, produced by Philip van Kerrebroeck and co-workers in 2002. Its major value is that it represents the first exhaustive recommendations for the diagnosis of Nocturia. This Guideline adequately points out definitions and information on the correct assessments of patients with Nocturia and represents a valid tool for primary and secondary care clinicians involved in treating patients with Nocturia.
