The document aims to: (i) offer an appraisal of all relevant literature up to November 2016, focusing on any key developments; (ii) address important, practical clinical questions relating to the primary guidelines objective (i.e. accurate diagnosis and identification of cases and suitable treatment); (iii) provide guideline recommendations; (iv) where appropriate, provide practical and health economic implications; and (v) discuss potential developments and future directions.
