| ||"Corticosteroid drugs are analogs of natural hormones, made by the adrenal glands, that have anti-inflammatory properties. These drugs are used as short-term treatments for a host of AIDS-related conditions, such as neuropathy, esophageal ulcers, various skin rashes and thrombocytopenia. They are combined with other drugs to treat AIDS-related KS, acute Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and tuberculosis and to reduce the increased intracranial pressure due to toxoplasmosis or CNS lymphoma."|
