Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Diagnosis and Management in Young People: a primer, 2017 Edition

This primer was compiled and published in June 2017 by the International Writing Group for Pediatric ME/CFS. It was originally published as a review article based in Frontiers in Pediatrics on 19 June 2017 and will be published as a printable monograph version which will contain an index, and have a cover containing original artwork created by a young person with ME/CFS.

In the meantime the international team of authors (which includes our advisor Dr Nigel Speight) are keen that the primer is distributed and used free of charge.


This primer has been written to provide the information necessary to understand, diagnose, and manage the symptoms of ME/CFS in children and adolescents.
