The right corticosteroid daily dose for pemphigus vulgaris is.. 50- 100 mg hydrocortisone



The right corticosteroid daily dose for pemphigus vulgaris is:


  • a- 1-2 g/kg/daily
  • b- 1-2 mg
  • c- 10 mg
  • d- 50- 100 mg hydrocortisone.***

Very high dosages are used initially to suppress bulla formation (of the order of 1 mg/kg prednisolone daily), but this may often be slowly reduced to a maintenance dose of 15 mg daily or thereabouts.
