Core Tip The epidemiology, clinical presentation and management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) may vary in different geographical regions due to differences in diet, gastrointestinal infection and infestations, socio-cultural and psycho-social factors, religious and illness beliefs, symptom perception and reporting. Asia is geographically and socio-demographically diverse. In this context, India, Bangladesh and Malaysia share some similarities: (1) large population live in rural areas; (2) there is rapid development and associated lifestyle changes in urban areas; and (3) similar dietary, cultural and religious practices. The present review aims to explore clinical and epidemiological data on IBS from these three major nations in South and South-East Asia.
