In one of two cases of systemic effects of high-dose inhaled corticosteroid treatment with fluticasone propionate, adrenal suppression was demonstrated in a young man, and in the other retarded growth and severe general effects were observed in connection with infection in a child. These cases illustrate the risk of systemic effects of inhaled corticosteroids, and the importance of using the lowest possible maintenance dose.
