Issue 7. A Parasitic Roundworm Linked to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

by J. C. Waterhouse, Ph.D.

Note:  This article has been removed due to being out of date.  Work on the roundworm, provisionally named Cryptostrongylus pulmoni, found in the sputum of chronic fatigue syndrome patients, continues.  Lawrence Klapow, Ph.D., and his collaborators have prepared a manuscript on the occurrence, diagnosis, and treatment of the roundworm, covering the work of the past 14 years, which will be submitted for publication shortly.
