Treatment Pathways for Chronic Fatigue States with Infective Aetiologies

Chronic fatigue states (CFS) have a high impact, both socially and in terms of economic productivity and they place a significant burden on primary care services.

When CFS patients are investigated conventionally they sometimes display anomalous investigation results. In practice, however, it is often not clear which of these anomalies are primary, or secondary phenomena and it can be difficult to instigate an effective treatment plan using only objective information of this kind.

Using illustrative case-studies with an infective aetiology we will discuss how to support and rehabilitate patients with Chronic Fatigue. These clinical examples will serve to illustrate how the maintaining factors for fatigue states in individual patients can sometimes be identified from the case history. We will discuss how contextual clinical information can be used to model effective treatment plans.
