To provide objective information about sleep physiology in young

people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), home

polysomnography (PSG) was performed on 18 teenagers, aged

11-17 years, in whom CFS had been diagnosed according to

internationally accepted criteria. The results were compared

with those for healthy controls matched individually for

gender and age. Compared with controls, CFS subjects showed

significantly higher levels of sleep disruption by both brief

and longer awakenings. Disruption of sleep in this way could

at least contribute to the daytime symptoms of young people

with CFS. The underlying cause of the disruption needs to be

considered in each individual case. Further research is

required to clarify the relative contribution of this

neurobiological aspect of CFS in young people.
