Post-infection fatigue syndrome following Q fever

  [ 22 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • February 5, 1998


In 1989, 147 individuals in the West Midlands, UK, were
infected with Q fever. Five years later, following anecdotal
reports of fatigue, we used a questionnaire-based case-control
study to determine the prevalence of chronic fatigue syndrome
symptoms in this group. Replies from 71 patients were compared
with those from 142 age- and sex-matched controls. Increased
sweating (52.9% vs. 31.6%, p = 0.006), breathlessness (50.7%
vs. 30.6%, p = 0.006), blurred vision (34.3% vs. 17.8%, p =
0.016) and undue tiredness (68.7% vs. 51.5%, p = 0.03) were
found in controls compared to cases. These findings were
similar to those in Australian abbatoir workers occupationally
exposed to Q fever. CDC criteria for chronic fatigue syndrome
were fulfilled by 42.3% of cases and 26% of controls. Using
visual analogue scores, symptoms were more severe in cases
than in controls. Our findings support the existence of a
chronic fatigue state following acute Q fever, in a group of
patients exposed just once to the organism, and in
circumstances free of such confounding factors as lawsuits
over compensation.
