Corticosteroids are a class of steroid hormones that are delivered in the adrenal cortex of vertebrates, just as the engineered analogs of these hormones. Two primary classes of corticosteroids, glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids, are engaged with a wide scope of physiological procedures, including pressure reaction, safe reaction, and guideline of aggravation, starch digestion, protein catabolism, blood electrolyte levels, and conduct. Engineered pharmaceutical medications with corticosteroid-like impacts are utilized in an assortment of conditions, running from cerebrum tumors to skin infections. Dexamethasone and its subsidiaries are practically unadulterated glucocorticoids, while prednisone and its subordinates have some mineralocorticoid activity notwithstanding the glucocorticoid impact. Fludrocortisone (Florinef) is a manufactured mineralocorticoid. Hydrocortisone (cortisol) is regularly utilized for substitution treatment, for example for adrenal inadequacy and innate adrenal hyperplasia.
