Komaroff on Chronic Fatigue Synrome

"At a Stanford meeting held earlier this year, Dr Komaroff pointed out that many of the infectious agents that have been linked to ME/CFS—including Epstein-Barr virus,[17] HHV-6,[18] Coxiella burnetii (aka "Q fever"),[19] Ross River virus in Australia,[20] and various enteroviruses[21]—are ones that can't be fully eradicated by the immune system even in healthy people and/or are capable of infecting the central nervous system. This suggests the possibility that some ME/CFS patients may have a chronic, low-level encephalitis, he postulated."
