BACKGROUND: Postherpetic neuralgia is a common serious complication of herpes zoster. Corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory and might be beneficial. OBJECTIVES: To examine the efficacy of corticosteroids in preventing postherpetic neuralgia. SEARCH STRATEGY: We updated the searches for randomised controlled trials of corticosteroids for preventing postherpetic neuralgia in MEDLINE (January 1950 to February 2010), EMBASE (January 1980 to February 2010), LILACS (January 1982 to February 2010), the Chinese Biomedical Retrieval System (1978 to 2010 ) and the Cochrane Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (The Cochrane Library Issue 1, 2010)...

BACKGROUND: Fungal infection may be secondary to nasal polyposis or represent a real etiopathogenic factor in the infection itself. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a combined treatment with lysine acetylsalicylate (LAS) and amphotericin B in preventing recurrence in patients with nasal polyposis with accompanying mycotic infection in comparison with a control group with nasal polyposis and fungal infection who did not receive antifungal therapy...

OBJECTIVE: To report clinical features, response to treatment, and long-term follow-up of nail lichen planus in children. DESIGN: Retrospective study involving 15 children with nail lichen planus. SETTING: Outpatient consultation for nail disorders at the Department of Dermatology of the University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy. PATIENTS OR OTHER PARTICIPANTS: We diagnosed nail lichen planus in 15 children younger than 12 years, including 10 children with typical nail matrix lesions, 2 children with 20-nail dystrophy (trachyonychia), and 3 children with idiopathic atrophy of the nails...

Experiments were performed to establish the pharmacokinetics of triamcinolone acetonide and the effects of the glucocorticoid on glucose metabolism in horses. The pharmacokinetics after intravenous (i.v.) dosing was best described by a three-compartment open model. There was rapid distribution from the central compartment followed by two phases of elimination. The half-life of the rapid elimination phase was 83.5 min and of the slower phase was 12 h. The term (Vss/Vc)-1was 12.3 indicating extensive distribution into the tissues...

A 4-week, double-blind, randomized clinical trial, comparing the efficacy and safety of clobetasol propionate emollient cream 0.05% and its vehicle, was conducted at four private dermatology clinics in 81 non-hospitalized patients (> or = 12 years old) with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis covering 2% or more of their body surface. All patients had at least one lesion 2 cm or more in diameter. Three signs/symptoms of target lesions (erythema, pruritus, and induration/papulation) were scored by investigators on a scale of 0-3 (in 0...

Corticosteroids are effective in reducing the airway inflammation and controlling the symptoms of asthma. Many patients with chronic, severe asthma are steroid-dependent, requiring daily oral corticosteroids. Although corticosteroids may be effective, many patients suffer from their intolerable side effects. Various medications have been used as steroid-sparing agents in patients who suffer from the side effects of long-term high-dose steroids. While drugs like methotrexate and cyclosporine are promising, none have clearly been shown to be beneficial in most patients with asthma...

We describe our experience with administering intramuscular triamcinolone acetonide to 22 steroid-dependent patients with asthma. These patients represent the minority of those with asthma whose disease is characterized by frequent emergency department visits, hospital admissions, and long-term dependency on oral corticosteroid therapy. The participants were randomly assigned to 2 treatment groups, one group receiving 120 mg of intramuscular triamcinolone acetonide, the second receiving 360 mg as a series of three 120-mg daily doses...

BACKGROUND: We studied a large series of patients with lichen planus (LP) limited to the nails. OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to review the clinical and histopathologic features of 24 patients with LP limited to the nails and to discuss treatment and long-term prognosis. METHODS: The records of 24 patients with biopsy-confirmed nail LP were analyzed. Clinical and follow-up data were obtained. RESULTS: Nail LP usually appears during the fifth or sixth decade of life...

Subcutaneous atrophy developed in a 36-year-old woman at the site of a triamcinolone acetonide (Kenalog) injection for subdeltoid bursitis. Occurrence of local atrophy after corticosteroid injection is relatively frequent yet unappreciated. It is more common in young women and girls who are given preparations with a lesser degree of water solubility. Although the condition is often reversible, instances of long-term disfigurement are well documented. This complication of a useful treatment method can be avoided by following a set of precautions for local injection of corticosteroids...

14 patients with chronic bronchitis were observed after from 1.5 to 8 years of regular treatment with corticosteroids of sustained action given intramuscularly. The patients were analysed from the standpoint of age, sex, duration of corticosteroid treatment, type and dose of the drugs, and smoking. In 9 of them accelerated development of osteoporosis was noted its appearance depended significantly only on age and sex.

Five patients received intramuscular injections of triamcinolone acetonide for periods ranging from five months to three years. Metyrapone tartrate testing was used to assess the function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis during, after, and, in one case, before the drug therapy. The HPA axis function was found to be suppressed during the period of treatment and up to ten months after cessation of therapy. Lens opacities appeared in two of the five patients while they were receiving triamcinolone acetonide...
