Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is the common name[1] for a group of significantly debilitating medical conditions characterized by persistent fatigue and other specific symptoms that lasts for a minimum of six months in adults (and 3 months in children or adolescents).[2] The fatigue is not due to exertion, not significantly relieved by rest, and is not caused by other medical conditions.[3][4] CFS may also be referred to as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), post-viral fatigue syndrome (PVFS), chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS), or by several other terms. Biological, genetic, infectious and psychological mechanisms have been proposed, but the etiology of CFS is not understood and it may have multiple causes.[5][6]

Fatigue is a common symptom in many illnesses, but CFS is comparatively rare.[10] Estimates of prevalence vary from 7 to 3,000 cases of CFS for every 100,000 adults;[5][10] national health organizations have estimated more than one million Americans and approximately a quarter of a million people in the UK have CFS.[11][12] CFS occurs more often in women than men,[13][14] and is less prevalent among children and adolescents.[11]
