Descriptor síndrome de fatiga crónica
Entry term(s) encefalomielitis miálgica
enfermedad sistémica de intolerancia al esfuerzo 
síndrome crónico similar a la mononucleosis infecciosa
síndrome de fatiga postvírica
Scope note: Síndrome caracterizado por fatiga persistente o recurrente, dolor musculoesquelético difuso, trastornos del sueño, y trastornos cognitivos subjetivos que se prolongan durante 6 o más meses. Los síntomas no son producidos por el ejercicio ni se alivian con el reposo, causando una disminución sustancial de las actividades ocupacionales, formativas, sociales o personales que se realizaban previamente. Se pueden asociar a este síndrome alteraciones leves de la función inmunitaria, nueroendocrina y autónoma. También hay una considerable superposición entre esta enfermedad y la FIBROMIALGIA.

Scope note: A syndrome characterized by persistent or recurrent fatigue, diffuse musculoskeletal pain, sleep disturbances, and subjective cognitive impairment of 6 months duration or longer. Symptoms are not caused by ongoing exertion; are not relieved by rest; and result in a substantial reduction of previous levels of occupational, educational, social, or personal activities. Minor alterations of immune, neuroendocrine, and autonomic function may be associated with this syndrome. There is also considerable overlap between this condition and FIBROMYALGIA.
