Cognitive functioning is impaired in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome devoid of psychiatric disease.

  [ 23 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By DeLuca J, Johnson SK, Ellis SP, Natelson BH. • www.ProHealth.com • February 1, 1997


OBJECTIVE: To examine the effect of the presence or absence of psychiatric disease on cognitive functioning in chronic fatigue syndrome.

METHODS: Thirty-six patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and 31 healthy controls who did not exercise regularly were studied. Subgroups within the chronic fatigue syndrome sample were formed based on the presence or absence of comorbid axis I psychiatric disorders. Patients with psychiatric disorders preceding the onset chronic fatigue syndrome were excluded. Subjects were administered a battery of standardized neuropsychological tests as well as a structured psychiatric interview.

RESULTS: Patients with chronic fatigue syndrome without psychiatric comorbidity were impaired relative to controls and patients with chronic fatigue syndrome with concurrent psychiatric disease on tests of memory, attention, and information processing.

CONCLUSION: Impaired cognition in chronic fatigue syndrome cannot be explained solely by the presence of a psychiatric condition.
