To the Editor: A group of distinguished experts on neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) has reached a consensus regarding diagnostic criteria for NMS using the Delphi technique under the coordination of Dr Ronald J. Gurrera. It is logical to assume that the use of the Delphi technique would result in a more acceptable set of criteria and probably lead to advantages for future research on NMS.

However, the implementation of this consensus may lead to some important changes and presumed advantages in the understanding of the condition that were not mentioned by the authors.
