The group of 21 patients with chronic fatigue dominant symptomatology was analysed. The average age of patients was 37,6 years and the duration of symptomatology was in average 3,7 years. 15 pacients suffered with mild fatique, 5 patients suffered with moderate fatigue and 1 patient had severe fatique. We supposed, the psychiatric diagnosis was the main cause of fatigue in 8 patients, the combination of diagnoses was the cause in 9 patients, and idiopathic fatigue e.g. chronic fatigue syndrome had 4 patients. Chronic fatigue syndrome seems to be the complex nosologic unit. It is characterised by prolonged duration and it is occured mostly in young and middle-aged people. The optimal way for diagnostic process is short stay in hospital, on internal department, in collaboration with qualified and engaged experts from others medical disciplines.
