Özet

Objective: Corticosteroid (CS) therapy is widely used as the standard treatment for acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis (MS). Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head is one of the long-term complications related to CS therapy. Our study aims to investigate the association between annual and cumulative doses of CS treatment and radiographic assessment of AVN of the femoral head in MS.
