Abstract:

Gulf War Illness GWI consists of a set of debilitating symptoms that have been associated with deployment to the Persian Gulf theatre of war, either in 199091 in Kuwait or 2003-11 in Iraq. There is general agreement that physical exposures play an important role in the etiology of this disease or diseases, yet studies to identify a single major causative exposure have been largely unproductive.
