Fatigue and lack of energy are frequent symptoms in children and adolescents. A
diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome should be considered in children and
adolescents who complain of chronic fatigue associated with other symptoms
without a demonstrable physical cause. Lack of knowledge about this syndrome and
late diagnosis may have a negative impact on the normal development of affected
children and adolescents. Treatment should be based on a rehabilitation program
with cognitive behavioral therapy and a gradual increase in activities.
