Corticosteroid induced pancreatitis

Drug induced autoimmune liver disease is a poorly defined and under-reported the liver disorder, and, probably, an underestimated liver disease [ 10 ]. Although DIAIH may develop after a prolonged use of a drug, it seems that DIAIH can be presented with acute hepatitis of unknown etiology. Female sex seems to be a risk factor for DIAH. Treatment decisions should be given according to patient’s clinical status and follow ups at acute presentations of DIAIH. There can be no treatment need, but, when needed generally a short course of immunosuppressive treatment can be sufficient without relapse opposed to idiopathic AIH.

Corticosteroids have been used as drug treatment for some time. Lewis Sarett of Merck & Co. was the first to synthesize cortisone, using a complicated 36-step process that started with deoxycholic acid, which was extracted from ox bile . [43] The low efficiency of converting deoxycholic acid into cortisone led to a cost of US $200 per gram. Russell Marker , at Syntex , discovered a much cheaper and more convenient starting material, diosgenin from wild Mexican yams . His conversion of diosgenin into progesterone by a four-step process now known as Marker degradation was an important step in mass production of all steroidal hormones, including cortisone and chemicals used in hormonal contraception . [44] In 1952, . Peterson and . Murray of Upjohn developed a process that used Rhizopus mold to oxidize progesterone into a compound that was readily converted to cortisone. [45] The ability to cheaply synthesize large quantities of cortisone from the diosgenin in yams resulted in a rapid drop in price to US $6 per gram, falling to $ per gram by 1980. Percy Julian's research also aided progress in the field. [46] The exact nature of cortisone's anti-inflammatory action remained a mystery for years after, however, until the leukocyte adhesion cascade and the role of phospholipase A2 in the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes was fully understood in the early 1980s.

Allergic sensitivity to a topical corticosteroid is usually only picked up when an eczematous dermatitis being treated by a topical corticosteroid fails to respond to treatment or worsens. In cases of persistent or exacerbating dermatitis treated with corticosteroid preparations, corticosteroid sensitivity should be considered. However, it may also be due to irritation from or allergy to other components of the preparation such as preservatives . Lanolin , ethylenediamine , quaternium-15 and the antibacterial agent neomycin , are all known to be potent sensitisers.
