Chronic ciguatera fish poisoning
This article is a stub. Please help improve this page if you can.
Chronic Ciguatera Fish Poisoning (CCFG) or Ciguatera fish poisoning is also known as ichthyosarcotoxism is a type of food poisoning caused by eating fish contaminated with the toxin ciguatoxin. Chronic ciguatera fish poisoning has been found to cause almost identical symptoms to chronic fatigue syndrome. It is classed as a rare disease.
Ciguatoxin[edit | edit source]
Ciguatoxin is a toxin found in some tropical and subtropical fish, and cannot be inactivated by any form of cooking.
