Severe Versus Moderate Criteria for the New Pediatric Case Definition for ME/CFS - Source: Child psychiatry and Human Development, Jun 10, 2009

  [ Not Yet Rated ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Leonard A Jason, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • June 11, 2009


The new diagnostic criteria for pediatric ME/CFS are:

• Structurally based on the Canadian Clinical Adult case definition,

• And have more required specific symptoms than the (Fukuda et al. Ann Intern Med 121:953-959, 1994) adult case definition.

Physicians specializing in pediatric ME/CFS referred 33 pediatric patients with ME/CFS and 21 youth without the illness. Those who met ME/CFS criteria were separated into Severe and Moderate categories.

Significant differences were found for symptoms within each of the six major categories:
- Fatigue,
- Post-exertional malaise,
- Sleep,
- Pain,
- Neurocognitive difficulties,
- And autonomic/neuroendocrine/immune manifestations.

In general, the results showed

• Participants who met the Severe ME/CFS criteria reported the highest scores,

• The Moderate ME/CFS group show scores that were a little lower,

• And the control group evidenced the lowest scores.

Findings indicate that the Pediatric Case Definition for ME/CFS can distinguish between those with this illness and controls, and between those with Severe versus Moderate manifestations of the illness.
