Dexamethasone has good luck results for many patients with lung diseases. The only problem that was not raised or f these patients had any signs of sepsis or not and what percentage were septic. Steroids in general can aggravate sepsis and increase mortality. So we have to be careful to generalise using dexamethasone for every patient especially those having significant signs of sepsis and poorly controlled diabetes.
