Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors report frequent side-effects in children treated with Corticosoids (CTS) for a long time. CTS were prevalently administered for treatment of rheumatic and immune-allergic diseases. The most relevant side-effects in our patients were: growth suppression, osteoporosis, cataracts, hirsutism, iatrogenic Cushing's syndrome, purple striae. We seldom observed renal stones and hypertension. The most important side-effects were observed with systemically administered CTS; adverse effects were more strictly related to treatment duration than to the daily dose.
