Solving the ME/CFS criteria and name conundrum: the aftermath of IOM
In 2015, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) proposed a new name and set of clinical criteria for what had previously been referred to as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS).
This committee recommended the adoption of the term systemic exertion intolerance disease (SEID) and clinical criteria that required specific symptoms such as post-exertional malaise and unrefreshing sleep.
This article reviews efforts to evaluate the revised criteria as well as reactions to the new criteria and name.
