The objective of this article was, from a sociocultural perspective, to explore the emergence of two clinical entities between 1970 and 1980, which, in the fields of general clinical medicine and psychoknowledge, give names to conditions centered on the symptom of fatigue: chronic fatigue syndrome (ICD-10 G93.3) and burnout (ICD-10 Z73.0). We intend, after a brief presentation of both of these, to analyze the emergence of these two categories, to acknowledge fatigue and exhaustion as symptoms to be medically treated, and to explore similarities and differences between them.
