Introduction: The interest reached by the medical community of the intestinal microbiota, its alteration as a cause of dysbiosis and relationship in health and disease is exposed. 

Objectives: Review the most recent criteria related to gut dysbiosis.

Discussion: The role of the intestinal microbiota and its microbiome in health and disease, the value of the omic methods for its knowledge and the participation of the imbalance of the intestinal microbiota in the production of dysbiosis, the predisposing factors, causes, effects, are exposed. intestinal and systemic diseases related to dysbiosis and the action of intestinal modulation in the dysbiosis management.

Conclusion: Attention is drawn to the importance of gut dysbiosis as a decisive factor in the production of digestive and extradigestive diseases in childhood and adult individuals and the value of the manipulation of the intestinal microbiota for its treatment.
