There is another different, chronic, disabling sequel to acute Q fever which takes the form of a prolonged debility and fatigue syndrome. This sequel has features in common with the chronic fatigue syndrome thought to follow proven virus infections (eg., Ross River fever, glandular fever) or virus-like episodes in which a viral cause is not established by laboratory tests. Patients suffer from an incapacitating fatigue on minor exertion, muscle and joint pains, headaches, etc
