Text books are a cornerstone in the training of medical staff and students, and they are an important source of references and reviews for these professionals. The objective of this study was to determine both the quantity and quality of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) information included in medical texts.

After reviewing 119 medical text books from various medical specialties, we found that 48 (40.3%) of the medical text books included information on CFS.

However, among the 129,527 total pages within these medical text books, the CFS content was presented on only 116.3 (0.090%) pages.

Other illnesses that are less prevalent, such as multiple sclerosis and Lyme disease, were more frequently represented in medical text books.

These findings suggest that the topic of CFS is underreported in published medical text books.
