Abstract

The aim is to present a document, which is based on current evidence and serves as a guideline for use in clinical practice. The following questions are addressed:

• Is the use of antenatal corticosteroids (ACS) an effective therapy?

• Who are the candidates for antenatal corticosteroid therapy?

• Is there benefit after 34 weeks' gestation?

• When is the optimal time to treat?

• Which are the optimal steroids; what is the ideal dose and route of administration?

• Are there any contraindications to the administration of ACS?

• Are antenatal corticosteroids indicated in women with premature rupture of membranes (PROM)?

• Is the use of ACS recommended in pregnancies complicated by maternal diabetes mellitus?

• Should the treatment with corticosteroids be repeated?
