Corticosteroids are commonly prescribed by practitioners in many medical specialties for the treatment of chronic inflammatory conditions. The use of corticosteroids in the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis is well described and based on their anti-inflammatory effects. The duration of corticosteroid therapy in these conditions is often less than 1 month, in contrast to the treatment of chronic respiratory diseases (ie, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) or autoimmune disorders (ie, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Crohn disease, and ulcerative colitis), which can last for years.
