Methods: Case report and short survey of the current literature. Results: In our patient with locally advanced pancreatic cancer, inflammatory state and recurrent ascites/oedema due to an anorexia-cachexia-syndrome, persistent symptom control could be reached by antiinflammatory treatment and supplemental PN until his death.
