Pediatric Case Definition for ME/CFS

Wednesday 26 March 2008

DePaul UniversityDePaul University’s Center for Community Research is currently conducting a study about the new Pediatric Case Definition for ME/CFS.

This case definition and a pediatric ME/CFS assessment tool called the DePaul Pediatric Health Questionnaire were developed in 2006 by the International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (IACFS).

The aim of the study is to assess the efficacy of this case definition in correctly diagnosing ME/CFS in children in comparison to current diagnostic tools.

Consequently, the Research Center is asking for assistance in helping them gather participants for this study:
