To date there is no international guideline on chronic pelvic pain available that focuses on medical, psychosomatic and psychological diagnostics and treatment of this complicated disease pattern. In this paper, a European working group, which was established in October 2010, aims to bridge this gap. The working group decided to use the current German guideline as source text and to transform it into a European consensus statement by deleting parts that apply only to the conditions of the German health system. The literature search included papers published up to and including December 2010, using Medline search and by adding some new search terms. This manuscript reports the essential facts of the above-mentioned consensus statement. Within this article we use the term "psychosomatic" as the integrated concept of medical and psychosocial aspects of a disease.
