Abstract

Corticosteroids are therapeutic drugs used in the management of various diseases. They are vastly used in the field of medicine for treating chronic diseases. Steroids act as drugs of choice when the rest of the drugs failed in the due course of the management of illness. Even during the Covid-19 pandemic steroids stood as hope for treatment. Corticosteroids always act as a cure for chronic diseases despite their known Adverse effects. They always stand as hope for the clinician in restoring the health and vigour of the patient. In this article, we shall discuss corticosteroids and their applications in the management of chronic diseases in medicine and dentistry.

Keywords: Corticosteroids; Glucocorticoids; Mineralocorticoids
