The Concise Encyclopedia of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome summarizes current knowledge about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) to help doctors and those working with CFS patients become familiar with recent developments and lessons learned about this and related fatiguing disorders. The information has been thoughtfully organized so that you will be able to easily access and become familiar with highlights of the most relevant topics.

The Concise Encyclopedia of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome will bring you up-to-date on advances in cardiovascular medicine, endocrinology, epidemiology, immunology, infectious diseases, neurology, psychiatry, and psychology which have served as the basis for the formulation of new lines of research and novel therapeutic interventions for CFS.

You'll find valuable information on the A-to-Z of CFS in the Concise Encyclopedia of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, including the relationships between:

  • AIDS and fatigue
  • brain injury and fatigue
  • cancer and fatigue as well as:
  • demographics of CFS
  • interstitial cystitis
  • MAO inhibitors
  • neuropsychology of CFS
  • psychosocial measures
  • stress factors
  • tumor necrosis factors ...and much more

    Comprehensive and thorough, the Concise Encyclopedia of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome highlights areas that need more research and gives you greater awareness of this widespread and growing problem. This compendium will educate and create greater CFS awareness among healthcare professionals and the general public.
