Abstract

Encompassed by the term chronic lung disease (CLD) of prematurity is a sequence of pathophysiological processes ranging from acute inflammation and its resolution to remodelling and growth. There is good evidence for clinical and biological effects of parenteral corticosteroid therapy at each stage in the disease process. A number of questions remain to be resolved: can risk prediction be refined to permit trials ofprevention; what is the minimum effective dosage regime; are topical corticosteroids effective; what are the long-term effects on lung growth and development and indeed, is the long-term prognosis of CLD affected by corticosteroid therapy? It is prudent to be cautious with steroids until these questions are answered.
