The clinical characteristics and putative pathogenetic mechanisms of the irritable bowel syndrome are described. The complex inter-relationships between stressful life situations, psychoneurotic and somatic factors involved in the production, maintenance and management of alimentary symptoms are discussed using a behavioural model and catastrophe theory.
