Abstract

We report the case of an atopic patient aged 16 with a perannual asthma. He has been treated since the age of 4 with inhaled corticosteroïds. His growth was regular until he was 14 when beclomethasone was replaced by fluticasone (both administered by pressurized inhaler) due to adrenal suppression. Growth inhibiting effects of different inhaled corticosteroids are discussed focusing mainly on their effect on collagen synthesis.
