Diagnostic Criteria of the Hypersensitive Disorders
The hypersensitive disorders are recognised by an abnormal increase in perceived sensation from the lower urinary tract in the absence of bacteriological infection or detrusor contraction (p. 4). A detailed examination of each of these three criteria allows for clarity of clinical definition which in turn leads to a basis for classification of the sensory disorders. Firstly, however, it is necessary to describe two forms of sensation which, although abnormal, are not commonly associated with the clinical conditions described in later sections of this book.
