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.

On the other hand concomitant intake of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs results in a synergistic, highly damaging effect on the gastroduodenal mucosa.
