Abstract

A FREQUENT PRESCRIPTION:

Corticosteroids are widely prescribed in the long-term treatment of various pathologies (chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases, asthma and allergic diseases, auto-immune diseases...).

CONSEQUENCE OF BONE LOSS:

Corticosteroids can be responsible for side effects such as corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis and the increase in risk of fracture is one of the major problems. Great progress in the field of epidemiology, diagnosis, physiopathology and treatment has led to the elaboration of rational and efficient care of patients receiving corticosteroids.
