Abstract

Sweating is a frequent symptom in patients with malignant disease, which may significantly decrease quality of life. Pharmacological treatment is not always successful and often leads to intolerable side effects. Salvia seems to be a very attractive non-pharmacological treatment, even so its mechanism of action is unknown. In this article we present a case of advanced lung cancer patient, whose sweating was successfully reduced by drinking salvia infusion.
