Abstract: A number of recent reports have emphasized laboratory abnormalities, clinical tests, and therapeutic approaches that appear to have great promise in the evaluation and management of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Because of the heterogeneity of CFS, the cost of many of these assays and procedures, and the frequent lack of skilled consultants able to apply relevant sophisticated procedures, the solo healthcare provider is often left with uncertain options in patient management. This article summarizes current approaches to patient management, utilizing available information relevant to CFS.
