The Medical Practitioners' Challenge in 2001: Informed, Accurate Diagnosis

  [ 62 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Third International Clinical and Scientific Meeting for Myalgic Encephalopathy/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome • www.ProHealth.com • December 1, 2001


INTRODUCTION

Since 1996, the CDC's National Centre for Infectious Diseases has defined ME/CFS as a Priority #1 Disease of Public Health importance. Prevalence estimate is 183 people per 100,000 population.

How does the hurried medical practitioner reach an accurate diagnosis of ME/CFS when faced with multiple symptoms, non specific pathology and little time to document a long, complex history? Superficial evaluation frequently leads to misdiagnoses such as depression, anxiety or somatoform disorder.

This challenging meeting of international and Australian researchers and clinicians will present the latest findings to assist differential diagnosis and advance clinical care.
