Re: why are steroids given for inflammation of the brain

lamont,

Steroids are given to reduce inflammation. Steroids are used to treat inflammation in other parts of the body as well,... lungs (asthma), in the joints (arthritis), and in the tissue (sore throat)...but those are just a few examples.
