ACCS is the acronym for "Acute Cystitis Symptom Score". This is a questionnaire presented in 2015 to validate uncomplicated acute cystitis in women (Alidjanov et al. 2016).
Part A of the ACSS includes questions on typical symptoms, differential diagnosis, quality of life and concomitant circumstances and was completed at initial presentation.
Part B contains additional questions on dynamics and is completed at the follow-up presentation.
Here, only suboptimal discriminatory power with regard to treatment success was found.
This was probably caused by an ambiguous wording in the translation and was revised in all language versions in 2017.
As a result, the ACSS was included in the interdisciplinary AWMF S3- guidelines in 2017 (Wagenlehner 2017).

A score of ≥ 6 points in the "typical symptoms" category indicates acute cystitis with a sensitivity of 94.7% and a specificity of 82.4%.
Part B indicates a very good discriminatory power between success or non-success of a treatment performed up to that point (Alidjanov 2017).
