During the last few years compound E (cortisone) and compound F (hydrocortisone) have been used with considerable success to suppress the symptoms of allergic and related disorders. There are those who decry their use, saying that they merely suppress symptoms and that they possess potentially serious side effects. There are also those who seriously misuse these agents, employing them in trivial conditions, often in inadequate dosage and frequently with little or no supervision of the patient. The purpose of this paper is to summarize experiences with cortisone and hydrocortisone in allergic and related disorders during the last four years.
