Gulf War syndromemedical dictionary


A term often but inappropriately applied to various health problems experienced by US military personnel after serving in the Persian Gulf conflict of 1991; symptoms of fatigue, musculoskeletal pain, headaches, dyspnoea, memory loss, and diarrhoea have been reported, but an NIH panel has concluded that evidence of a specific syndrome is lacking.

Synonyms: Persian Gulf syndrome.
