Abstract

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a clinical syndrome characterized by profound disabling chronic fatigue associated with a wide array of other physical symptoms. Its etiology is currently unknown. Among the various hypotheses, considerable interest has been placed in the hypothalamus-pituitary- adrenal axis as a possible target of the pathogenesis of CFS. This article reviews the available scientific evidence about a role of hypothalamic- pituitary-adrenal axis in the pathogenesis of chronic fatigue syndrome.
