ROME II Diagnostic Criteria for Functional Abdominal Pain
The diagnosis of Functional Abdominal Pain always presumes the absence of a structural or biochemical explanation for the symptoms.
D1. Functional Abdominal Pain Syndrome
At least 6 months of:
Continuous or nearly continuous abdominal pain; and
No or only occasional relationship of pain with physiological events (e.g., eating, defecation, or menses); and
Some loss of daily functioning; and
The pain is not feigned (e.g., malingering), and
Insufficient criteria for other functional gastrointestinal disorders that would explain the abdominal pain.
D2. Unspecified Functional Abdominal Pain
This is functional abdominal pain that fails to reach criteria for functional abdominal pain syndrome.
