Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The consensus meeting attempted to clarify concepts associated with the clinical entity often termed 'NERD' and to define it in a way that would permit physicians to communicate accurately amongst each other when they use the term, so that there may be a common understanding of the condition. In this paper, eight clinical case scenarios are presented that illustrate some points of potential uncertainty and ambiguity in the use of the term NERD and the clinical management of patients. They are discussed in relation to views reached by the consensus group.
