Treat infection if present; discontinue if infection persists or worsens. Do not use near eyes, or on diaper dermatitis or pre-existing skin atrophy. Do not use fluorinated steroids longer than 1 week on the face. Avoid abrupt cessation in chronic use. Systemic absorption increased by broken or inflamed skin, prolonged use, application to large surface area, or use of occlusive dressings. Occlude only if necessary; do not occlude higher potency products. Monitor adrenal function in children if a high potency product or occlusion is used, and in adults if more than 50g weekly of a high potency product is used. Discontinue or reduce dose or potency if HPA axis suppression, Cushing's syndrome, hyperglycemia, glucosuria, or irritation occurs. Use lowest effective dose and potency (esp. in children). Use caution if applying to face or body folds. Do not use continuously or for prophylaxis. Foams are flammable. Reevaluate periodically. Pregnancy (). Nursing mothers.

The most common immunosuppression regimen used in patients after liver transplant is the combination of calcineurin inhibitor, usually tacrolimus, with prednisone. Recurrence of AIH in the transplanted liver can occur in 25% to 30% of the cases and seems to be more common when prednisone is discontinued. 41,42 Thus prednisone is usually continued at low doses after transplant. Autoimmune hepatitis recurrence in the liver transplant can often be successfully treated by reintroducing prednisone and optimizing calcineurin inhibitors. A combination of prednisone and azathioprine has also been used to treat recurrent AIH. These patients have a similar prognosis as transplanted patients who do not have recurrent AIH. 41

30 mg/kg/dose (Max: 1 gram/dose) IV or IM once daily for 1 to 3 days. High-dose pulse steroids may be considered as an alternative to a second infusion of IVIG or for retreatment of patients who have had recurrent or recrudescent fever after additional IVIG, but should not be used as routine primary therapy with IVIG in patients with Kawasaki disease. Corticosteroid treatment has been shown to shorten the duration of fever in patients with IVIG-refractory Kawasaki disease or patients at high risk for IVIG-refractory disease. A reduction in the frequency and severity of coronary artery lesions has also been reported with pulse dose methylprednisolone treatment.

In an embryofetal development study in pregnant rabbits, beclomethasone dipropionate administration during organogenesis from gestation days 7 to 16 at subcutaneous doses equal to and greater than  times the MRHDID in adults (on a mg/m 2 basis at maternal doses of  mg/kg/day and higher) produced external and skeletal malformations and embryolethal effects (increased fetal resorptions). There were no effects in fetuses of pregnant rabbits administered a subcutaneous dose  times the MRHDID in adults (on a mg/m 2 basis at a maternal dose of  mg/kg/day).
