Although, CFS was first mentioned four centuries ago, mysterious aethiopathogensis of CFS still intrigues scientists as hundreds of studies are still published every year on the subject. About 80 different aetiological CFS factors are mentioned, which can be classified into five basic groups: genetics, immunology, infectious diseases, endocrinology and neuropsychiatry-psychology. Even today the condition is passed established based on the diagnosis by exclusion of organic and psychiatric disorders, which demands a multidisciplinary approach.
