Neuroinflammation is inflammation of the nervous tissue, particularly the brain. Inflammation has been found in autopsies of ME/CFS patients. ME/CFS patients also have microglia activation.[1]

Notable studies[edit]

  • Autopsies of four deceased ME patients showed various pathological phenomena in the central and peripheral nervous systems. [2]
  • Brain Scans of ME/CFS from Stanford ME/CFS Initiative show inflammation. The New York Times article "Brains of People With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Offer Clues About Disorder" has startling color images.[3]
