During its short life time evidence-based medicine (EbM) has been subject of partly fierce criticism, mainly from the side of the clinic. In Germany, Rogler and Schölmerich (September 2000) published a critical commentary on EbM in the Deutsche Medizinische Wochenschrift. Our text is intended as a rejoinder. It firstly aims at clarifying the concept of EbM, especially its contribution to the science of clinical medicine, and it secondly answers relevant details of Rogler and Schölmerich's criticism. Their text turns out to be a mixture of truely relevant remarks, exaggerations, misunderstandings and obvious errors.
