Allergol Immunopathol (Madr). 2005 Jan-Feb;33(1):42-7. [Article in Spanish] Ferre Ybarz L, Cardona Dahl V, Cadahia Garcia A, Ruiz E, Vazquez A, Fernandez de Sevilla T, Alegre Martin J. Seccion de Alergologia. Hospital Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, Spain. Background: Several hypotheses have been postulated to explain the etiopathogenesis of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Among these, immunologic dysfunction has been proposed. Up to 30 % of these patients have a history of allergic disease. The aim of this study was to investigate whether allergic sensitization is higher in patients with CFS than in the general population. Methods: Twenty-five patients with CFS and 20 controls were evaluated. A clinical history for allergy was taken and immediate hypersensitivity tests were performed. Results: Twelve patients (48 %) and eight controls (40 %) had a family history of atopy. Personal histories of atopy were as follows: rhinoconjunctivitis: 12 patients (48 %), seven controls (35 %); asthma: five patients (20 %), two controls (10 %); food allergy: three patients (12 %); atopic dermatitis: two patients; contact dermatitis: two patients. No statistically significant differences were found between the groups in any of the variables (p > 0.05). In the CFS group, 3.4 % (15/441) of the inhalant prick tests were positive, and in the control group 3.8 % (16/420) were positive. None of the tests for hypersensitivity to food or latex were positive. Conclusions: In our study atopy was not more prevalent in patients with CFS than in healthy controls, although the CFS group tended to report more respiratory symptoms and drug allergies.
