    Abstract

    Steroids are anti-inflammatory drugs that have been utilized in a wide range of clinical illnesses, including rheumatologic, autoimmune, inflammatory, and numerous lung diseases. Because of the inhibition of the inflammatory cascade, corticosteroids are beneficial in many pulmonary disorders, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), laryngotracheobronchitis, interstitial lung diseases, severe pneumonia, and acute respiratory distress syndrome. We will report a case of a COVID-19 patient treated with remdesivir, antibiotics, and steroids. We will also discuss the role of steroids in the management of COVID-19 patients.

    Keywords: coronavirus disease (covid-19); corticosteroids in covid-19; covid-19 pneumonia; dexamethasone; systemic steroids.
