These diseases are of particular interest to maxillofacial surgeons and physicians because of their local and systemic manifestations and their ill-defined etiology, and more so, because they are either partially or completely refractory to most forms of treatment. It must be emphasized that in none of the cases in which a favourable response was obtained can it be regarded that this treatment has effected a final cure. However, these studies demonstrate that hydrocortisone is a valuable research tool in the field of oral and dental medicine.
