We describe the case of a 28-year-old woman, who had been suffering for more than 5 years from severe fatigue, myofascial pain, obstipation, obesity of trunk, abdominal striae, oedema, tinnitus, folliculitis, and facial swelling. The patient also showed a secondary adrenocortical insufficiency. From the anamnesis we assumed that environmental factors could account for the symptoms. The therapy consisted of dietary advise, chelating agents, supplements, and acupuncture. Under this therapy the patient became completely symptom-free. No such case has ever been reported before. We report mainly on the CAM diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, which are discussed together with the assumed pathogenetic factors.
