and ONFH, although it is disputable.
Our survey analysis did not include if the rate of complication is higher in skeletally mature athletes and it is possible that the physicians who prescribed oral corticosteroids

Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis: Favourable response to corticosteroids
The efficacy results suggest that pimecrolimus has similar efficacy to topical corticosteroids

are vital medicines for treating and preventing diverse disorders such as asthma, transplant rejection and arthritis.

However, research also indicates that cognitive side effects associated with corticosteroids

Our case report emphasizes the risk of repeated intra-articular injections of long-acting corticosteroids
and call attention to the fact that little is known about the total dose of corticosteroid
associated with osteonecrosis.
