Pneumonia remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. There is both theoretical and laboratory evidence that corticosteroids may have beneficial effects in pneumonia through local pulmonary and systemic effects. The data for this evidence-based summary is derived from a Cochrane meta-analysis by Stern et al,4 which included 17 trials with 2264 adult and children admitted to the hospital with community-acquired pneumonia.
