Corticosteroids are potent but hazardous medications which can be abused. This article reviews existing literature on corticosteroid abuse and provides three new case reports. A profile of the corticosteroid patient is described and some treatment guidelines are offered. Hopefully, this article will sensitize physicians to the abuse potential of this class of drugs.
