Steroid ulcers: Any news?

Steroid ulcers, although a common feature in experimental studies, seldom develop in clinical practice, as observed by the meta-analyses carried out in the 90s. Corticosteroids alone become ulcerogenic only if treatment lasts longer than one month and the total administered dose exceeds 1000 mg. On the other hand concomitant intake of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs results in a synergistic, highly damaging effect on the gastroduodenal mucosa. Thus, despite the survival of the steroid ulcer myth in the medical culture, pharmacological protection against steroid-induced peptic ulcers is a rare necessity while the best prophylactic strategy still remains to be determined.
