Authors: Matsubayashi S, Nakatake N, Hara T Abstract Fatigue is a common symptom in patients visiting the clinic of psychosomatic medicine. A 250-μg synthetic ACTH (1-24) test (rapid ACTH test) and Beck depression inventory (BDI) were performed for 62 patients presenting with fatigue who visited the Department of Psychosomatic Medicine at Fukuoka Tokushukai Hospital. Patients were divided into 3 groups according to the serum cortisol response to the rapid ACTH test; those with a peak serum cortisol level of
