Corticosteroids for presumed pneumocystis pneumonia in patients with HIV infection
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Adjunctive corticosteroids decrease mortality in patients with HIV infection who have moderate to severe hypoxemia and suspected or confirmed pneumocystis pneumonia. Corticosteroids lead to a higher incidence of herpetic lesions, but not other opportunistic conditions. (Strength of recommendation: A, based on a systematic review of randomized controlled trials [RCTs].)
