Psychiatric diagnoses in Gulf War veterans with fatiguing illness - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome related research

  [ 115 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • December 13, 1999


The purpose of this study was to determine whether Gulf War
Illness (GWI) can be explained by the presence of psychiatric
disorders as assessed by DSM-III-R. To reduce the
heterogeneity amongst Persian Gulf War veterans with GWI
(PGV-F), only those were studied who presented with severe
fatigue as a major complaint and also fulfilled clinical case
definitions for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Idiopathic Chronic
Fatigue, and/or Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. A total of 95
Registry PGVs were examined; 53 presented with GWI and 42 did
not report any post-war health problems (PGV-H). All subjects
were assessed for the presence of DSM-III-R Axis I psychiatric
disorders. Compared to PGV-Hs, 49% of PGV-Fs had similar
post-war psychiatric profiles: either no, or only one,
psychiatric disorder was diagnosed. Psychiatric profiles of
the remaining 51% of PGV-Fs were significantly different from
PGV-Hs in that most of these veterans suffered from multiple
post-war psychiatric diagnoses. The presence of psychiatric
disorders as assessed by DSM-III-R criteria cannot explain
symptoms of Gulf War Illness among all Persian Gulf veterans
with severe fatiguing illness.
