Behavior problems and family functioning were investigated in a
sample of 10 adolescent girls with chronic fatigue syndrome
(CFS), 10 matched healthy adolescent girls, and 10 adolescents
with childhood cancer in remission. Based on the adolescent
girls' reports, the CFS group had significantly higher scores
than the cancer and healthy comparison adolescent girls on
somatic complaints and also significantly higher scores than
the cancer controls on internalizing symptoms and depression.
Parent reports resulted in significantly higher scores in the
CFS group than the adolescent girls from the healthy
comparison groups on internalizing scores and somatic
complaints. There were no significant differences on any
family variables.
