1.5.2 Corticosteroids

Notes:

  1. Steroids are the most appropriate treatment for acute disease but do not prevent relapse.
  2. Hydrocortisone enema is appropriate initial treatment for relapse, but if the symptoms have not resolved within two weeks, then specialist advice should be sought.
  3. Budesonide MR is licensed for the induction of remission in patients with mild to moderate Crohn’s disease affecting the ileum and / or ascending colon for up to 8 weeks. Refer to BNF or SPC for full details.
  4. Please refer to BNF chapter 6 for other indications of corticosteroids.
