Introduction: Tumor-associated fatigue (TrF) is a debilitating condition occurring during the course of the tumor disease, and even ongoing after all tumor specific therapies are completed. The syndrome consists of chronic fatigue, sleep disturbances, severe pain, brain-fog and is underestimated by both, patients and doctors. Diagnosis is made according to the criteria by Cella (Cella 2001), although it is felt not to be sufficient.
