Article:
Pediatric Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Source: Reviews in Health Care, 2012 vol 3, #4

By Leonard A Jason, Kristen Barker, Abigail Brown

[Note: you may freely read and print the full text of this article at http://ojs-seed.neagen.it/index.php/rhc/article/view/280/html. Suggests a separate “Moderate” pediatric ME/CFS clinical category; that, contrary to what some had thought, health may improve in pediatric cases, but “returning to pre-morbid functioning is rare”; and that “pacing strategies may be promising.”]

Abstract:
Research on pediatric Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is reviewed in this article.

Many recent articles in this area highlight the existence of key differences between the adult and pediatric forms of the illness.

This review article provides an overview of pediatric ME/ CFS, including:

• Epidemiology,

• Diagnostic criteria,

• Treatment,

• And prognosis.

Challenges to the field are identified with the hope that in the future pediatric cases of ME/CFS can be more accurately diagnosed and successfully managed.
