CFS shares overlapping symptomology with several diseases.
Intestinal dysfunctions such as dysbiosis and leaky gut likely contributes to CFS. Intestinal permeability, and the subsequent leakage of LPS into the blood, may also contribute to the chronic immune activation observed in CFS patients.
Several viruses have been associated with CFS but they are not specific for CFS; none of these viruses (i.e. Herpes virus 6 & 7, Parvovirus, Enterovirus, EBV, etc) are found in all CFS patients. Absence of detection could in some cases be explained by viral localization.
