The abstract doesn't make clear that they found that requiring three out of four of these yielded the best result when weighing sensitivity and specificity equally.
And requiring two out of the four and even one out the four was still a lot better than requiring all four of the four.
Requiring all four of the four did have 100% specificity but only a sensitivity of 81.6%.
A discussion about how criteria used clinically don't necessarily have to be the same as those used in research.
